Player Bio

After a strong first season in the red and blue, Charlie Spargo managed just the eight senior games in 2019.

The small forward missed games through issues with both injury and form, as he hurt his jaw and foot during the year.

Standing at just 173cm, Spargo relies on his pressure to have an impact for the Demons, helping his side trap the ball inside the forward 50 when he’s at his best.

The former No.29 draft pick is still new in the AFL system and will continue to develop his craft as a forward.

With experience playing in three finals in 2018, Spargo will be looking to have a strong pre-season and cement his spot in the Dees’ best 22 next year.
