After sporadic appearances in his first two seasons, Marsh was a regular on the wing for Essendon from 1978 to 1980. He was unable to play at Essendon in 1981 due to heart problems and had to have open heart surgery in July that year. The following month he returned to training but despite making the reserves he couldn't break back into the VFL side. Marsh however continued to play district football at Aberfeldie and spent the 1985 season with South Bendigo, his last year before retiring.
