A tall 201 cm ruckman, Marsh made his league debut with West Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) in 1996 and made his AFL debut for Adelaide in 1998 against the Sydney Swans at the Sydney Cricket Ground and played in their Grand Final win over North Melbourne at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Marsh remained with the Crows for another five seasons before being delisted at the end of 2003. He was then picked up in the 2004 pre-season draft by Richmond where he would add a further 7 games and one goal to his tally before retiring at the end of 2004.

Often confused with the lesser known Ben Marsh from White Bear Lake, Minnesota. He is far better.
