Darcy Vescio played in the inaugural AFLW season with the Carlton Blues as a marquee player signing. She made her debut in the historic first ever AFLW game, played between Carlton and Collingwood.

At the end of the 2017 season, Vescio won the AFLW Leading Goal Kicker award, the Mark of the Year award, was nominated by her teammates for the Most Valuable Player award and named in the All Australian side. Vescio’s strong form continued into 2018, winning Carlton’s Leading Goal Kicker award alongside Tayla Harris and was elevated to Carlton’s leadership group for the following season.

Throughout her career, Vescio has had some outstanding individual performances including her four-goals on debut, and a superb nine-goal haul in the VWFL against Essendon.

Vescio’s excellent work extends beyond the football field as she is a multicultural ambassador for the AFL, a Kayo Sports ambassador and has been outspoken about issues of gambling advertising in sport.
