Charlie Spargo grew up in Albury, a fourth generation AFL footballer.
Recognised as a talented footballer from an early age, was part of the Greater Western Sydney Academy from twelve years of age.
Moving to Melbourne to attend boarding school, Spargo played for the Murray Bushrangers, NSW/ACT Rams, and Melbourne Grammar School.
After selection in the AFL Academy, the talented athlete had his sights firmly set on an AFL career, which eventuated in the 2017 National Draft when he was taken by Melbourne with their first selection.
