The Western Bulldogs have earned an extra third round selection in the upcoming 2021 NAB AFL Draft in a three-club trade, which sees Lewis Young traded to Carlton.
The Bulldogs obtained selection 52 in the Continental Tyres Trade Period deal, adding to the extra picks obtained in a separate four-way deal with St Kilda, Melbourne and Adelaide on Wednesday.
As part of the arrangement, Carlton traded Sam Petrevski-Seton to West Coast in exchange for pick 52, which was then on-traded to the Dogs to facilitate the trade for Young.
Young played 24 games over five seasons at VU Whitten Oval, after being taken with pick 49 in the 2016 Draft.
“We thank Lewis for his contribution to the Western Bulldogs and wish him all the best for the remainder of his AFL career,” said Bulldogs’ General Manager of List Management and Football Projects, Sam Power.
“We’re pleased to have significantly improved our draft hand at this stage of the trade period, which will give us some flexibility over the next couple of months.”
The Bulldogs now hold selections 23, 44, 45, 52 and 93 for the upcoming Draft, to be held on November 24 and 25.
