CARLTON'S prized recruit Zac Williams will take over the No.6 guernsey worn with distinction for the past 18 years by Kade Simpson.

Williams joined the club from Greater Western Sydney during last year's trade period and was handed the jumper worn in 342 games by Simpson, who retired at the end of last season.

Fellow recruit Adam Saad will have a familiar number on his back, grabbing the No.42 he wore across 109 games for Gold Coast and Essendon, while Lachie Fogarty will move into No.8 – becoming just the third player to wear that number for Carlton in the last 25 seasons.

The Blues' announcement of their new 2021 jumper numbers is among the latest of several reveals ahead of the official AFL Community Series pre-season games beginning on February 18.
