Jets snap up promising young keeper

Newcastle Jets have snared a coup in 23-year-old goalkeeper Jack Duncan from Norwegian club Randers FC as they bolster their goalkeeping stocks for the 2016/17 season.

Duncan is ready to hit the ground running and is already gunning for Birighitti's number one jersey.

“I feel like I am definitely ready to become the number one and that’s definitely what I have come here to do,” Duncan said.

“I don’t want to be sitting on the bench.”  

“It will be healthy competition between us going through pre-season and battling for the number one spot. It’s exciting, it’s good, it will challenge both of us and hopefully make us both better.”

Newcastle Jets head coach Scott Miller was pleased with his addition, that continues his philosophy of nuturing young talent.

“Jack is another player we have added to our squad who fits our requirements in terms of age and attributes,” Miller said. 

“From our discussions with Jack it is very clear that he has returned determined to establish himself as a number one in the Hyundai A-League, and this is fantastic for us because we also have another very capable goalkeeper at the club in Ben Kennedy.” 

“Across our squad we are building competition for places."
