Carlton’s forward line will be in safe hands, with Darcy Vescio joining the Blues women’s team as a marquee player.
The 22-year-old full forward currently plays with the Darebin Falcons, which is touted as the most successful women’s team in Australia.
Vescio, who started playing footy when she was five, is a three-time premiership player with the Falcons and has represented 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 three days a week as a graphic designer, and is fittingly working on the design for the inaugural women’s guernsey.
