#25 JACK DUNCAN BIO – DOB 19/4/93

Jack Duncan joined the Phoenix on a one-year contract in June after securing an early release from the remainder of his deal with Newcastle Jets.

The goalkeeper has played more than 100 A-League matches, the majority with the Jets, and has also played professionally in Denmark and Saudia Arabia.

Born in Tasmania, Duncan grew up in Perth and Sydney before making his A-League debut for Newcastle as an 18-year-old in 2011.

He attended the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey before joining the Perth Glory, where he was limited to making just seven starts over two seasons deputising for Danny Vukovic.

In 2015 Duncan joined Randers FC in Denmark’s Superligaen before returning to Newcastle for the 2016-17 A-League.

He was a key member of the Jets side that went from wooden spooners in 2017 to grand finalists in 2018, but he unfortunately missed the title decider after tearing his quad in Newcastle’s semi-final victory.

Duncan’s performances earned him a move to Saudi Arabia, where he joined Al-Qadsiah FC. He started was a regular in goal for them over the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons before Covid brought the world to a halt.

He re-joined the Jets for a third time at the end of 2020 and he was their first-choice ‘keeper for the past three seasons.

> 2022-23 season

Jack Duncan started 16 of Newcastle’s 26 matches during the 2022-23 season, keeping three clean sheets and conceding 25 goals. The Jets conceded 20 goals in the 10 matches he missed.

He had the second-best save percentage in the 2022-23 A-League, narrowly behind the league’s goalkeeper of the season Lawrence Thomas.

“I’m known for shot stopping and being quite quick around the goal. I also like to dominate the box and come for crosses, and sweep in behind the backline.

“Hopefully I can bring all of those attributes to the Phoenix and keep some clean sheets.”
