The Blues finished 14th on the ladder in the 2016 and usually most clubs would class that as a failed season.
But, Carlton’s 2016 season should be seen as a success as the playing group gave their supporters glimpses of what is to come, as the club continues to develop and grow.
The Blues faithful will be hoping for more improvement in the up coming 2017 season.
