Duncan the latest Kestrels capture

KIRKCALDY KESTRELS are pleased to announce the return of utility player Jay Duncan for the new season.

The 21 year old is the younger brother of Kestrels forward and assistant captain Conor, plus is another player that came through the KIHC junior development programme. 

Duncan is a natural defenceman, but can play as a forward when required making him another flexible player for the Kestrels.

He said: “I am happy to be back with the Kestrels again and I am hoping we can have another big season. 

“Hopefully the juniors we have coming through and the current Kestrels players can complement each other on the ice, so we can continue where we left of last year. 

“Personally, I feel we can have a great season. We have a talented bunch of young players coming through who that will be playing up at our level, so it should be another exciting year.”

Jay can be described as an offensive D-man who carries the puck up ice and pinch in on the play when given the chance. 

He’s a fast skating player who likes the physical side of the game, playing the body and if required will drop the gloves to stand up for himself or his team mates.

The young D-man played in his second full season for the Kestrels last year after stepping up from under 20’s level. 

Jay played in 23 games last season for the Kestrels, scoring once and assisting in a further two and is no stranger to the SNL and continues to grow in confidence.

Everyone here at the Kestrels welcomes Jay back to the club and looks forward to seeing him back on the ice.
