Carlton Only Has One 'Leading Goalkicker' Left On Their List
Can you guess who it is?
Carlton don't have a whole lot of goal kickers left on their list...
Following yesterday's delisting of Andrejs Everitt, who topped the club leaderboard in 2015 with 31 goals, there is only one player left at the club who has kicked the most goals in a season.
Surprisingly, it is Matthew Wright who led the way in 2016 with 22 majors.
From 2011-2015, five different players kicked the most goals for Carlton each year and all have left the club due to retirement, trade or delisting.
The list doesn't take into consideration Josh Kennedy, who was also traded to West Coast in 2008 and has since led the goalkicking 5 times and won the Coleman Medal twice.
Here is the recent history:
Blues' Leading Goalkickers
2009 - Brendan Fevola (89 goals), Traded/Retired
2010 - Eddie Betts (42), Left Club
2011 - Andrew Walker (56), Retired
2012 - Eddie Betts (48), Left Club
2013 - Jeff Garlett (43), Traded
2014 - Jarrad Waite (29), Left Club
2015 - Andrejs Everitt (31), Delisted
2016 - Matthew Wright (22)
