BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club


PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Charlie Canet!

Recruited by the Blues from neighbouring amateur side Brunswick Juniors in 1916, Charlie Canet played finals football in each of his five completed seasons at Princes Park. Canet was born in country Victoria, in a place called Tallygaroopna which is located north of Shepparton. A lightly-framed, tenacious wingman, he was appointed vice-captain of the club in 1920, and captain the year after. But after just six matches in charge in 1921, Canet stood down from the role after an apparent altercation with his coach Norman Clark. He left Carlton later in that same season, and took up a big offer to coach country club Nathalia..

The Blueseum is looking for some additional help in 2020 – particularly with Game and Player Reviews. Open tasks are on the Task List.

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.
