Callum Urch (born 21 July 1984) is an Australian rules footballer who played for the Kangaroos in the Australian Football League.[1]

After attending Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Braybrook, Urch made his debut against the Sydney Swans in Round 19 at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 2004.[2] He was part of the 40 point 3-quarter time deficit revival that saw the Kangaroos come back in Glenn Archer's 250th game to win against the odds.

After playing just the 8 games over three years, and no games in 2007, he was delisted from the Kangaroos list at the end of the 2007 AFL season.[3] He was then recruited by Victorian Football League club Williamstown, before moving to Darley in the Ballarat Football League in 2009.[1]

In April 2013 Urch was arrested and charged with cocaine trafficking charges after a police investigation into waterfront corruption.[4]
