Moorcroft played nine games for Preston, before being drafted to Essendon via the Northern Knights in 1994. He was initially delisted by the Bombers before being brought back to the club through the rookie list. The former Morrish medallist became an Essendon premiership player in 2000 and grabbed the 2001 Mark of the Year. He saw his opportunities dry up at Windy Hill and was delisted at the end of 2002 as part of an effort to ease salary cap pressures.

Carlton had been expected to pick him up as part of their 'mature' recruiting campaign after losing draft picks, but the Demons struck first and when he booted a miraculous goal with his first kick in a Wizard Cup game it looked like a shrewd investment.

He suffered a season ending knee injury after a handful of games and was delisted at the end of his first year. Despite further speculation that he would join Carlton it was the end of his AFL career.

In 2004 Moorcroft joined the Bendigo Bombers for 14 games, before moving to Silvan a year later, where he kicked 156 goals In the 2008 Yarra Valley Mountain League Division. In 2009 he played for the Romsey Redbacks in the Riddell District Football League (RDFL), and joined Northern Football League side Bundoora in 2012 where he remained through 2018.
