Callum Bartlett played junior football with North Geelong before joining the Geelong Falcons under 18 team.
He was drafted by the Brisbane Lions in 2009 and spent four years on their list, playing in State League premierships in 2012 and 2013. During this time he had five knee operations, including a knee reconstruction on each leg.
After the Lions delisted him, the classy midfielder/half forward joined the Redlegs for the 2014 season. An excellent left footer, Bartlett had good disposal skills and was dangerous near goals. He made his SANFL debut in the opening round of the season and played 16 league games for the year.
Bartlett went on to be a member of the 2014 Grand Final side when he was named as an interchange in the nail-biting decider in which Norwood defeated Port Adelaide by four points.
He played 12 games in 2015 and 13 the following year.
In 2017 he made another 13 appearances and reached the 50 game milestone.
Bartlett played 14 games for the Reserves in 2018.
He later transferred to Payneham/Norwood Union (Adelaide Footy League) and in 2021 played in a losing Division One Grand Final.
