Footscray had to pay a hefty price in order to procure John Quarrell's clearance from Terang, but overall he failed to give full value for money. He began well, however, winning the Bulldogs' best first year player award after his debut season of 1957, but thereafter he produced his best form only intermittently. A pacy and skilful half forward flanker or wingman who kicked the ball well, Quarrell was among the Bulldogs' best in the losing grand final of 1961 against Hawthorn. He retired in 1962 after 53 VFL games.
