Bio Extra

Duncan is primarily a centre back, but is also comfortable slotting in at right back if required. The Falkirk-bred lad is hoping to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Zak Rudden & Billy Gilmour as an SFA performance school student (where football is practiced everyday within an educational environment) to make the professional breakthrough. The vision of the school is to "produce players with excellent technique who can pass with precision, control with comfort, run with purpose and play with joy." Played with the Thistle reserve team which competed in the Glasgow Cup of 2021-22. Made the first team bench in a friendly against Motherwell in July, 2022. No longer eligible to play with Thistle at U-18 level, Duncan joined the impressive University of Stirling set up, where he will play in the U-20s and push for a place in the men's team.
