Sarre, originally from Albany, was eighteen when he made his Subiaco debut in 1960. He spent the rest of the decade as the club's full-back, although occasionally he would venture forward or play in the ruck. Sarre finished his career with 172 games but never once got to appear in a Grand Final. His brother John also played at Subiaco while their father had been a ruckman with Sturt.

He made twelve interstate appearances for Western Australia, the first of which came in 1963 when he won a Simpson Medal for his effort against the VFL's star forward Doug Wade. In 1966, at the Hobart Carnival, Sarre again performed well and was selected in the All-Australian team.
