Carlton player gives his boots to young fan who had footy snatched from him

A generous act from a Carlton player has made a young fan’s year after the boy had a footy snatched from him after the side’s win on the weekend.

Steve told Ross and John that Jarrod Garlett saw young Mitch was upset after another child snatched the ball from him.

“He leant over the boundary to get a ball and another kid snatched it off one of the players, from him,” Steve said.

“He was a bit upset.

“Then Jarrod Garlett took his boots off, the special Aboriginal ones that are all painted, he gave them to him.

“I reckon that is bloody grouse.”
