Profile:

A Tiger is an animal of graceful and majestic movement and Duncan epitomised these characteristics fully. In addition he combined them with such talent. Christened 'Dally' by the fans for his apparent nonchalance, it was merely a ploy to hypnotise his opponent. Then, like a Tiger sensing a kill, he would pounce, swiftly moving inside from the touch-line to unleash a shot of enormous power. Although his artistry was often too rich a dish to be served up as Northern Section fare, he made his mark at Hull there is no doubt and his goals were of the highest quality. He played a key role in the Tigers cup run of 1929/30, appearing in every game and scoring the second goal in the first semi-final match against Arsenal.

His talent continued to blossom but with debts mounting, the club were forced to sell him to Derby for 2,000. There his star continued to shine. He gained international recognition, deservedly so, and played with Raich Carter in the Derby team that won the 1946 FA Cup Final.

Throughout their history, the Tigers have been blessed with many players of talent and skill. In the front row of that esteemed group will stand Dally Duncan.
