One of the four players invited to train with Carlton during the preseason for Carlton's final rookie spot on their 2020 list.
Worn number 50 in the practise match against Collingwood at Ikon Park, Princes Park on February 20 and then wore number 48 in the Marsh Series game against Fremantle at Mandurah, WA on February 29.

Playing his football for the Northern Knights and Vic Metro in 2019, Sturgess plays primarily as a defender but showed in his underage career that he can play multiple roles. The best friend (and former teammate) of Carlton draftee Sam Philp, Sturgess’ strength is his aerial work and athleticism. He turned 18 last November and while you’re more likely to see him stationed in defence, he also kicked nine goals from 13 NAB League games last year. Composed medium defender with an excellent intercept mark. He is courageous in taking on the game and his kicking is a key a feature of his play. He played all four games for Vic Metro in the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, averaging 14.8 disposals.

The other three players were Lukas Webb, Jordan Cunico and Callum Moore (with Moore winning the final spot on Carlton's list).
With all Sturgess, Webb and Cunico signing to play with the Northern Blues in 2020.

Previous Clubs: Northern Knights U18s/St Mary’s/Loyola College.
