Carlton Football Club | Blues


Carlton Football Club | Blues

The Carlton Football Club is the 3rd oldest club in the A.F.L and were the first premiers of the Victorian Football Association (VFA) in 1877.

Carlton's nickname the 'Blues' comes from the navy blue colour of its uniform. Carlton has traditionally been in the top 2 most powerful clubs boasting a winning record over the other clubs including rivals Collingwood, Essendon and Richmond.

Many memorable battles have been contested against them, most notably in a thriller in the 1947 Grand Final when Carlton beat Essendon by one point, in 1968 they beat Essendon to win by 3 points. In the Grand Final of 1972, Carlton defeated Richmond in a goal kicking spree that saw 50 goals kicked – the highest number of goals ever kicked in a Grand Final.

Thomas Wills, grandson of a convict and educated at England's famous Rugby school, strongly advocated the formation of "foot-ball" clubs to promote the maintenance of fitness levels for the cricket season. The cricket clubs of the colony of Victoria took up Wills' advice, with the Carlton Cricket Club meeting in 1864 to form a football club for its flannelled fools.
