Damien Duff


At 35 years of age, Damien Duff has had an illustrious career that has seen him win two English Premier League titles, two League Cups and a Community Sheild. Duff broke on to the scene playing for Blackburn Rovers and made a name for himself at the club in the 2002/03 season, scoring nine times, with the Club qualifying for Europe.

That stellar season saw the Irishman sign for Chelsea for 17 million pounds. Duff spent three seasons with the Club, playing a role in the 2004/05 and 2005/06 Premier League titles and reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League in the 2003/04 and 2004/05 seasons, finding the back of the net 19 times while at Stamford Bridge.

The Irishman then joined Newcastle United and later Fulham, reaching the final of the Europa League with the latter alongside former Socceroo goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

Duff represented his country 100 times, being only the fifth Republic of Ireland international to reach a ton of caps. He was part of the side that qualified for the Round of 16 at the 2002 World Cup, scoring against Saudi Arabia in Yokohama, and captained the side in his final game for the country against Italy at Euro 2012.

Duff joined the club in June 2014 on a free transfer and will bring a plethora of experience and killer instinct to the forward third.
