Portrait of Darcy Vescio

Darcy Vescio

Darcy Vescio joined the Carlton women’s team as a marquee player in 2017.

The 23-year-old full-forward started playing footy when she was five, going on to win three VWFL premierships with the Darebin Falcons and representing the Victorian state team on two occasions. After being selected with pick three in the 2014 draft, Vescio has played for the Western Bulldogs for the last two years.

She is known for her clean hands and regularly puts herself in dangerous positions, making her a handful for opposition defenders. 

Vescio works at Carlton four days a week as a graphic designer, and fittingly worked on the design for the inaugural women’s guernsey.
