He was an instant hit amongst the Wanderers fans, scoring on his debut before being named club captain the following season.
The 2019/20 season saw the 29-year-old score a career high 14 goals and it was not long before another move abroad beckoned, this time it was Saudi Arabian club Al-Taawoun who came calling. In January 2021 Western Sydney Wanderers announced that Duke was returning to the club on loan for the remainder of the season.
Best Socceroos moment:
Making his international debut in the 2013 AEFF East Asian Cup, Duke re-payed Holger Osieck's faith scoring in consecutive matches against powerhouse Asian outfits South Korea and Japan.
Current Socceroos manager Graham Arnold gave Duke his chance in professional football with Hyundai A-League side Central Coast Mariners where he won a championship in 2013.
He was Western Sydney Wanderers’ captain in the 2019/20 season before he departed for Saudi Arabia.
