Andy McKinnon came to Carlton from outer-eastern Olinda as a solidly built, promising rover-forward, and spent almost two seasons with the Blues’ Reserves team before gaining senior selection in 1989.
After showing promise in his first dozen games, he suffered a serious foot injury that prematurely ended his career in just his second year.
McKinnon was a Premiership Player at Reserves Level in 1990.
McKinnon also wore No.51 (1985), 54 1987, 59 (1986) and 60 (1986) whilst playing in the Blues reserves.
