Duncan Oughton (born June 14, 1977[1] in Karori) is a New Zealander footballer who currently plays for Columbus Crew in Major League Soccer.




Youth and College

Oughton attended the University of Otago in New Zealand, before coming to the United States to play college soccer at Cal State Fullerton from 1997 to 2000. As a senior as CS Fullerton, he scored 17 goals and 8 assists.


Upon graduating, Oughton was selected 10th overall in the 2001 MLS SuperDraft by Columbus Crew. Duncan immediately found playing time with the Crew, playing 20 games as a rookie, 12 of which he started. He has maintained a starting role for the Crew for the majority of his career, and is particularly useful because of his ability to play numerous positions in the midfield and defence. Oughton missed the entire 2005 season with a knee injury and was released in May 2006. However, he continued to train with the team, and on 18 August 2006 the team waived Leonard Bisaku and re-signed Oughton. However, Oughton's playing time with the Crew since then has been sporadic; he made just 9 first team appearances in 2006, and only 5 in 2008. In 2009, Duncan scored a bicycle kick goal against USL 1st Division team, the Rochester Rhinos, in an US Open Cup match. However, the Crew lost in penalties, with Duncan's being saved. In the 2009 MLS season, Oughton has been given the chance to be back in the first team and was rewarded with two straight starts, earning an assist in each.


Oughton has represented the New Zealand national team, on numerous occasions. He received his first cap in 2002 in a win over Tahiti in the Oceania Nations Cup.[2][3]

He was named as part of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup New Zealand squad to travel to South Africa.[4][5] He came on as a second half substitute in the 2-0 loss to South Africa.
