Bio

One of the most heartbreaking stories of last season was the tragic death of Varcoe’s younger sister Maggie just days after the final round. The veteran runner made a vow not to let down his club – his ‘second family’ – and he didn’t, playing all four finals thereafter and kicking a goal on each occasion, twice scoring the Pies’ first major. His brilliant goal in the qualifying final and the reaction of his teammates was an intensely emotional moment and he came within a whisker of adding to the two flags he won as a Cat.
