Matthew Cottrell

AFL - Carlton


Date of Birth



Pearcedale, Victoria


Pearcedale / Dandenong / Carlton


The grandson of former Carlton player Len Cottrell, Matthew’s journey to the club he supported as a child was slightly unorthodox. Overlooked in the 2018 National Draft, Cottrell was permitted to train with the Blues ahead of the 2019 season, who officially signed him as a pre-season supplemental selection in February.

Cottrell had some strong performances in the VFL throughout 2019, with the big bodied midfielder cracking Carlton’s side to make his AFL debut in Round 11, 2020.
