A.M. (Tony) Duncan arrived at Western with a good grounding in hockey gained at the Abbey School, Fort Augustus. Capped at schoolboy level, he quickly made his mark as a quick, tenacious defender, blessed with immaculate timing both in the tackle and ball-striking which belied his slight frame. Equally adept at full back or half back he made his debut against Holland in 1963, followed by appearances against the three home countries that season. His final cap was against Wales in Ayr in 1966, a sterile 0-0 draw in which his Western colleagues Morton Ramsay and Dennis Hay were also involved. However Tony remained on the fringes of the national side up to the inaugural European Nations Championship in 1970, when he was considered unlucky not to gain selection. A staunch club member, Tony served in various capacities throughout his time with the club.
