Biography: One of the classiest players to have graced the League during the seventies. McKenzie became the club's first major signing for four years when severe financial problems had restricted transfer expenditure. He was brought in in the hope of finding a much-needed cutting edge, but he never looked at home playing in a side with limited ability. Accordingly, he struggled to produce his best form and after only seven months in the capital was sold to Blackburn Rovers for less than half of the £165,000 originally paid out to Everton. Now working for Football in the Community based at Everton. Lives in Newton-le-Willow, Merseyside, owned a delicatessen, and has become an accomplished after dinner speaker and newspaper columnist.

McKenzie, Duncan I seem to recall that as a stunt he was able to jump over a mini, possibly revealed when he was at Everton who for obvious reasons banned him from doing it.

McKenzie, Duncan Went to same school many years ago (Wintringham Grammar). One day he was sent to our girls school to model for the art class & I drew him. Years later I often served his mum in Tesco Cleethorpes, lovely lady.

McKenzie, Duncan Lit up Goodison in the dark days, wonderful talent and a real nice guy, worth the entrance fee just to watch you Dunc.

McKenzie, Duncan On his day a wonderful player and talent! Unfortunately he didn’t have many of “his days” and often looked lazy, slow, unfit and totally disinterested. He remains an enigma and one on a long list of players that could and should have achieved much more with his talent.

McKENZIE, Duncan If memory serves I was at Stamford Bridge for a game against Spurs in November 1978. Mayhem on the pitch as usual and Duncan suddenly sat on the ball around the centre circle. All players stopped, thinking the game had stopped. Duncan then stood up and sprinted forward as though nothing had happened. Eccentric yes, brilliant yes, wasted talent - probably.
