Glory goalkeeper trials with Danish club

Topics

Perth Glory reserve goalkeeper Jack Duncan has secured a trial with Danish high-flyers Randers FC.

Duncan will spend the next two weeks in Europe and play in a pre-season game with Randers who currently sit third on the Superliga ladder after enjoying an impressive start to the season.

The 21-year-old Perth native has played seven A-League games and represented Australia at U-20 and U-23 level.

He was recently invited to trial with the Danish topflight club between between January 10 and 24.

Duncan is back-up to Glory's first choice goalkeeper, Danny Vukovic, who is in fine form for the league leaders.

 “As a footballer you want to play at the highest possible level and hopefully this may lead to that goal” Duncan said.

“Playing in Denmark is an opportunity not to be missed and playing in Europe has been a long-term goal for me.

“My aim is to play regular football and improve my game and I feel this is an ideal time to seize the moment.

“I’d like to thank coach Kenny Lowe and club CEO Jason Brewer in supporting me in this adventure.”

Randers was formed in 2003 after the merger of six local clubs and is the winner of the 2006 Danish Cup.
