He opened the scoring inside three minutes, before the home side scored two in quick succession to make it 2-1 after just 13 minutes.

Liverpool levelled though five minutes later with Elisha Dixon-Bonner scoring from Duncan’s assist.

Duncan added his second, but ‘Boro levelled on the stroke of half-time for 3-3.

The topsy-turvy nature continued after the break with Middlesbrough restoring their lead inside two minutes of the restart, with Stephen Walker claiming his hat-trick from the spot.

Not to be outdone, Duncan levelled again for his hat-trick shortly after.

The hosts then made it 4-3 on 65 minutes, but Duncan hit his fourth in the 76th minute then assisted fellow striker Paul Glatzel in the 90th minute to complete an incredible victory at Rockliffe Park training facility.
