At A Glance

Player Honours: -

Junior Club: Diamond Creek (Vic)/Northern U18
Draft History:
 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft No. 21 overall, 2016 Rookie Draft selection (Gold Coast) 

A diligent small forward, Darcy Macpherson is shaping up for a big year in 2018. The 20-year-old was prolific in the NEAFL last season and earned himself eight senior games in the process. 

Macpherson has added considerable bulk to his frame this pre-season and has impressed Stuart Dew with his ability to harass and tackle his opponents with his defensive pressure. Macpherson works hard and has a great work ethic which will place him in the frame to play consistent senior football this year.
