The South Adelaide Football Club is Mourning the Passing of Former Player and Coach David Darcy

Recruited from Sunshine YCW, David Darcy played for Footscray from 1963 to 1966, and came across to South Australia in 1967 having transferred his employment with British Tubemills.

Having moved across to the Panthers, Footscray refused to clear David to play, causing him to miss the first 7 games of the 67' season. 

Once the approval came through, he would make his debut in Round 8, 1967 against Woodville, where he would score a goal from playing in the back pocket. 

He had an outstanding debut season with the Panthers where he would finish third in the Magarey Medal from only 11 games.

David transferred back to Melbourne in 1968 and played with Footscray until 1971. 

He would go on to play 133 games with Footscray, and four state games for Victoria.

David came back to Adelaide in 1972 and ended up staying for 28 years.

On his return to the Panthers he was selected as captain-coach for the 1972 and 1973 seasons, and became outright coach in 1974.

He played the last of his 44 game career for South Adelaide in Round 21, 1973 against Sturt. 

David is the Father of Luke Darcy, who also played 10-games for the Panthers in 1993. 

The South Adelaide Football Club would like to express its sincere condolences to the Darcy family during this difficult time.
