Where are they now? Former Spurs Academy player Dylan Duncan:

Midfielder Dylan Duncan was at Spurs for a good number of years as an Academy player. The Londoner signed scholarship forms with Spurs in the summer of 2015, and was part of a very good Spurs Under 18 side during the next two seasons, which included the likes of Japhet Tanganga, Brandon Austin, Samuel Shashoua and Marcus Edwards. Primarily starting matches in central midfield, Dylan can also play as a defensive-midfielder, as a CAM and out wide as a winger. Capable of running games from midfield, the now 23 year old footballer showed his very good technical ability on the ball over the years for Spurs, and also his fine skill on the ball, and ability to go past players with it. Duncan would feature regularly for the Spurs Under 18 side during the 2015/16 season and also the 2016/17 season. A midfielder player who has an eye for goal, Dylan joined the then Spurs Under 23 side for the start of the 2017/18 season, and during that season and the following 2018/19 season he would play a really good number of games for the Spurs Under 23 side.

Dylan scored one goal from 26 Premier League 2 appearances for the Spurs Under 23 side, and he also showed the creative side of his game. Unfortunately Dylan left Spurs at the end of his contract, at the end of the 2018/19 season. He soon joined Queens Park Rangers for the following 2019/20 season. Getting a good amount of games for the QPR Under 23 side during the first part of the 2019/20 season, Dylan joined Scottish side Dunfermline Athletic, on loan in the January of 2020. He would then return to QPR for the start of the 2020/21 season, and would join up again with their Under 23 side. Dylan left the West London side at the end of that 2020/21 season, after his contract with them came to an end. After spending quite a while without a club, Dylan signed for League of Ireland Premier Division side Finn Harps  on the 18th of June 2022. The club from County Donegal in Ireland, are currently in ninth place in the The League of Ireland Premier Division, and they will be hoping to avoid relegation from the top division this season.

Dylan will be an important player for Finn Harps during the remainder of the season. He made his competitive debut for Finn Harps as a second half substitute in a league game against Sligo Rovers, and Dylan has subsequently featured in their last two league fixtures. Dylan was always a played that I thought highly of during his Spurs Academy days, and it is really good to see him playing full-time football, again. I would like to wish Dylan all the very best of luck for the remainder of this season with Finn Harps.
