Charlie Curnow (born 3 February 1997) is a professional Australian rules footballer playing for the Carlton Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Curnow received a nomination for the 2017 AFL Rising Star award in round 16 of the 2017 season.

Early life[edit]

Curnow played his state level under-18s football for the Geelong Falcons in the TAC Cup. He became recognised as a strong key forward with elite endurance.[1] He was considered a top draft prospect, with some risk due to a knee injury which saw him miss a large part of his final year of under-18s football.[2] Charlie's older brother, Ed Curnow, also plays at Carlton.

AFL career[edit]

Curnow was recruited by the Carlton Football Club with a first round selection in the 2015 AFL national draft, number 12 overall.[1] He made his senior debut for Carlton in round 2, 2016 against Sydney.

After the eight point loss to Melbourne in round 16, 2017, he was the round nominee for the AFL Rising Star, in which he recorded nineteen disposals, ten marks, four tackles and two goals.[3]

In September 2017, he placed fourth overall in the AFL Rising Star with a total of 27 points.
