Carlton have extended coach Brett Ratten's contract for a further two years, the AFL club said on Thursday night.

Speaking at the Carlton Football Club's annual general meeting, club president Stephen Kernahan told members Ratten's contract had been extended until the end of the 2011 season.

"It gives me great pleasure to confirm that the board has extended Brett's contract for a further two years," Kernahan said.

Ratten, who played 255 games for the Blues between 1990-2003, took the helm late in 2007 and coached his first full season this year.

The Blues finished 11th with 10 wins and 12 losses to miss the finals by eight points.

Ratten, 36, was a member of Carlton's 1995 premiership-winning side, won three best and fairest awards at the club and captained the Blues in 2002-03.

Carlton also awarded life membership to Simon Wiggins and Laurie Carter on Thursday night.

Wiggins automatically received life membership as he has represented Carlton in senior matches in eight seasons.

Carter was the club's bootstudder from 1983 until 2007.
