2021/22 Player Profiles - Duncan
Jet-setter Duncan joined us this Spring from Sydney, and not since Kylie dropped her seminal 1988 debut “I Should Be So Lucky” has an Australian arrival on these shores been so well recieved.
Hailing originally from slightly cooler climes (read as Guildford), Duncan has slotted seamlessly into both the Falcons’ front line and social sphere, scoring and necking shots in equal measure. His commitment on the pitch was shown in last year’s league semi-final, where he was left bloodied and bandaged following an aerial collision, but this crack to his shell has not stopped resident egghead Duncan from regular attendance at Falcons’ pub quiz outings. Despite having a penchant for life’s luxuries (he’s a man known to live for a pitcher of Pimms), Duncan is not exclusively about the glamorous lifestyle, which is handy for him, as he has the lifelong affliction of being a Sheffield Wednesday fan.
