Pre VFL Players

The names below are players who have been named in Carlton teams, Carlton team squads, or Second Twenty/Reserves, in practice, pre-season, exhibition and club matches, or reported to have been recruited by Carlton, up until the end of season 1896.

As the newspaper reports of the day mostly only mentioned the player's surname, and there are many same named players playing around the same era, some player's game entries may be incorrect.
Without the first name being available, this has resulted in some calculated guess work.

Due to work commitments, (most people worked on Saturday mornings), and the transport difficulties of the time, sometimes players named in the teams were unable to play and the emergencies or even substitutes from the crowd had to be used.

Many first names and other details are not known.
If you can help with the missing names, dates of birth and or death, other information or images, if you have a relation, or you know of someone who played for the Blues and their name is not here, please contact Blueseum. www.blueseum.org/tiki-contact.php (external link)

Below are the names of 902 players who are known to be listed for the Blues from 1864 to the end of 1896. (Some Senior and many Reserve teams are missing so this number in incomplete.)
In addition, listed separately at the bottom of the page are the 28 players who are known to have made the transition from the VFA to the VFL in 1897.



"Melbourne clubs have histories, but no members are prouder of their club's past than the Carltonians."

"Rambler" - The Referee, Sydney, March 03 1915


"CARLTON has many fine traditions one dating back to the days of George Robertson, George Coulthard, Paddy Gunn, and then on through Jack Baker, Sam Bloomfield, 'Gib' Currie, Tom Blake, Jim Flynn, and his great team, is characteristic - it is the spirit of never being beaten. No matter what the odds, Carlton may always be relied on to give it's best on the biggest occasions.''

''Old Boy" - The Argus, August 31 1924
