Mark James Duffy (born 7 October 1985) is an English professional footballer who plays as a right winger for Sheffield United.

Career[edit]

Born in Liverpool, Duffy played for the youth teams of both home-town club Liverpool and Welsh team Wrexham.[3] Duffy began his senior career playing non-League football for Vauxhall Motors, Prescot Cables and Southport.[4]

Duffy signed for League Two club Morecambe on loan in February 2009,[5] before making the move permanent in the summer.

Duffy moved to Championship side Scunthorpe United on 20 January 2011 for an undisclosed fee, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.[6][7] He made his debut two days later, in a 0–0 draw at home to Burnley.[8]

He moved to Doncaster Rovers in July 2013.[9]

Duffy signed a two-year contract with Birmingham City in June 2014 after activating his relegation release clause at Doncaster Rovers.[10] He made his debut as a second-half substitute in the opening-day defeat at Middlesbrough, and his first League start for the club on 27 September, in a 2–1 home defeat to Fulham; Duffy was substituted at half-time, at which point Birmingham were leading.[11] After appearing only once more in the league by the end of January 2015, he spent a month on loan to League One club Chesterfield, where he made one start and two substitute appearances.[11][12]

Before the start of the 2015–16 season, Duffy joined Burton Albion, newly promoted to League One, on loan until 2 January 2016.[13] In pre-season, Burton manager Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink used him in a playmaker role,[14] and he began the league season as a regular selection in the starting eleven.[15] In the opening match, Scunthorpe goalkeeper Luke Daniels was sent off for elbowing Duffy in the head; the resulting penalty gave Burton a 2–1 win.[16]

After the initial loan period expired, it was extended to the end of the season.[17] Duffy completed the season having missed only one league match, against Walsall in February after twisting his ankle in training.[15][18] He scored eight goals[15] and provided numerous assists[19] as Burton were promoted to the Championship as League One runners-up. His performances earned him selection in the PFA League One Team of the Year.[19]

He was released by Birmingham at the end of the season,[20] and signed a two-year contract with League One club Sheffield United.[21]
