Utility Dennis Armfield will remain a Blue for another year after signing a new deal.

The 29-year old will remain with Carlton until at least the end of 2017 after signing a one-year deal.

Armfield will also take on a part-time coaching role with the newly-formed Carlton Womens' side.

Speaking to the Blues' website, he said he was very excited to join back on.

“Carlton means so much to me, I’ve been here for nearly ten years and there is a really good feeling at the Club. We’re a developing side, and I am passionate about teaching our younger players and hopefully having a positive influence on them,” Armfield said. 

“The body is feeling good and I still feel I have a fair bit to offer in terms of my playing career, so I am thankful the Club has given me this opportunity to go around again.

“To also explore my passion for coaching through a part-time role with our women’s team is a terrific opportunity – I think these talented female footballers have so much to offer and I can’t wait to play a small role in this exciting new competition.”
