Blueseum - Online Carlton Football Club Museum



Born in Canberra and raised in Western Australia, Dennis Armfield grew up playing Rugby Union. By his late teens however, he had switched codes to Australian Rules and it wasn’t long before the pacy, fair-haired youngster was a star for junior clubs Eastern Hills and Kalamunda. In 2002 he was recruited by WAFL heavyweights Swan Districts and, over the following five seasons, progressed through the ranks to be the Swans’ 2006 Rookie of the Year, as well as Best on Ground in the WAFL Reserves Grand Final.

In 2007, Dennis was promoted to the Swans’ seniors. He played all 20 matches for the year, before being drafted by the Carlton Football Club at selection 46 in the 2007 AFL National Draft. It was a pivotal moment in time for the Navy Blues, in so far as Armfield’s arrival at Princes Park coincided with the recruitment of West Coast champion Chris Judd and launched the rebirth of the Blues after five of the worst seasons in the clubs’ history.

Within the Blueseum you will find thousands of pictures and video clips of the players, the people, the games and the grounds that have made the Old Dark Navy Blues of Carlton one of Australia’s greatest sporting clubs.

There are lots of historically significant shots as well, like this wonderful 2001 image of a young Jack Silvagni at training with his dad, Carlton’s Full-Back of the Century, Stephen Silvagni.

Since 2006, this website has been produced by a dedicated group of volunteers who spend their free time delving into and recording the history of the Carlton Football Club. The site is based on the wiki concept (think of wikipedia) where registered users are able to create and edit content independently.

Therefore, everyone interested is cordially invited to join us. No experience is necessary, because you’ll be guided every step of the way and you will be making a real contribution to your club.
