Clem Smith has been delisted by the Blues after seven games

CARLTON forward Clem Smith has been delisted after failing to play a game under coach Brendon Bolton.

Smith, 20, was drafted at No. 60 in 2014 and lined up in seven games under Mick Malthouse and caretaker coach John Barker last season. He averaged eight disposals in his AFL career.

All the retirements and delistings

The West Australian played 15 matches in the VFL in 2016. 

"On behalf of the club, we thank Clem for his services over the past two years and wish him very well for the future," Blues football manager Andrew McKay told the Blues' website. 

The announcement comes ahead of the club's best and fairest count on Friday night. 

Smith joins Matthew Dick and Jayden Foster as being cut from the list, while Michael Jamison, Andrew Walker and Cameron Wood have retired.
