City on Duggan:

Toni Duggan joined City as one of four marquee signings at the end of 2013 on a three-year deal.

There is no doubt over the calibre of player Nick Cushing battled to sign during the off-season. Named as the FA Women’s Young Player of the Year in 2009, the England Women’s Under-23 Player of the Year in 2012 and North West Female Player of the Year in 2013, Duggan is no stranger to national plaudits.

Duggan signed from Everton Ladies where she began her career at the age of 15. Since breaking into the side in 2007, she established herself as a regular in the senior side, gaining valuable Champions League experience and asserting significant influence on Everton’s successful 2010 FA Women’s Cup campaign.

Away from home, youth provided a catalyst for various commendable international successes for Duggan. The Liverpool-born striker came on to score on her debut for England Under-17s and has since consistently found the net at under-19, 20 and 23 levels.

On her 18th birthday, the striker netted the winner in the UEFA Under-19 Championship final against Sweden. Since her call-up to the senior England Women’s team, Duggan scored eight goals in 14 appearances, including a first-half hat-trick against Turkey in September 2013. 

Since then, she has gone on to become a regular for the Lionesses and played a part in their bronze medal success at the World Cup in Canada in 2015.

She scored her first City goals in a 2-1 win over Reading in the FA Women's Cup and went on to find the net ten times in her debut season and nine times the season after.

Amongst those strikes were a Continental Cup semi-final winner at Hyde, a stunning chest-and-volley and a few 'postage stamp' worldies. Her strike against Chelsea on the final day of the 2014 league season was voted as the Nissan City Goal of the Season and FA Women's Super League Goal of the Season.

The latter stage of her 2015 campaign was hampered through injury but without a doubt, the Scouse striker will be back next year hungrier than ever.
