BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club (Cached)



In something of a surprise, Carlton recruited former Haileybury College captain Cameron Polson at pick number 59 in the 2016 NAB AFL National Draft. Although undeniably talented, the 18 year-old midfielder-forward had suffered a serious shoulder injury midway through 2016. He hadn’t played since, putting his prospects in jeopardy.

Earlier, Polson’s season had seemed headed for new heights when he kicked four goals in a quarter to get Haileybury over the line in a tight contest against Xavier College. He impressed again with 16 disposals and 4 tackles in an Under-18 Vic Metro trial game, but then dislocated a shoulder in only his fourth match with the Sandringham Dragons, and his season was prematurely ended.
