Duggan broke into the Everton side in the 2007–08 season when the regular forwards suffered injuries. She scored the winning extra–time goal against Watford Ladies to put Everton into that season's FA Women's Premier League Cup final.
Duggan was the named the FA Women's Young Player of the Year in 2009, the England Women's Under-23 Player of the Year in 2012 and the North West Female Player of the Year in 2013.
Duggan also played in Everton's 2010 FA Women's Cup final win over Arsenal. Her form in the second part of the 2011 FA WSL season led team–mate Rachel Unitt to predict a call–up to the senior England squad.
After seven years at Everton, it was announced on 28 November 2013 that Duggan had signed with Manchester City. In August 2015, she became the first female player to receive the club's Goal of the Season award following an impressive goal against Chelsea in the Women's Super League. She was part of the team when Manchester City played in the Women's Champions League for the first time. In November 2016, Duggan scored a noted goal in City's Champions League match with Brøndby.
Toni Duggan signed for FC Barcelona Femení on 6 July 2017. She was part of the squad that finished runners up to Lyon in the 2019 UEFA Women's Champions League Final. On 5 July 2019, Duggan announced she was leaving Barcelona after two seasons in Spain in search of a "new challenge."
In March 2007, 15-year–old Duggan came off the substitute's bench to score on her debut for England Under–17s. She has since represented England at Under–19, Under–20 and Under–23 levels. She played in the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in both 2008 and 2010. On Duggan's 18th birthday, she scored one of the two goals in England's 2009 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship maiden final win, against Sweden in Belarus.
Duggan completed her first cap for Hope Powell's senior team in England's 3–0 win over Croatia at Bescot Stadium on 19 September 2012. She scored her first international hat-trick in a match against Turkey on 26 September 2013. She scored another hat-trick in England's World Cup qualifying game against Montenegro in April 2014.
In 2015, Duggan was part of England's squad for the FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada. The team came third in the competition, securing the bronze medal, and were subsequently congratulated by Prince William at a reception held at Kensington Palace.
Like nearly all of today's professional women footballers, Duggan started playing with boys – for an under-eight team known as the Jellytots. Duggan attended Notre Dame Catholic College and graduated from Loughborough College in 2010.
In March 2014, she apologised after 'blacking up' for a fancy dress party to impersonate Whoopi Goldberg from the film Sister Act. In April 2015, she apologised after posting a picture of herself smiling with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, only hours after United had defeated City.
In May 2016, it was reported that Duggan was about to become the first of the England women's football team to reach 100,000 Twitter followers. Duggan commented that, "I like social media and without social media the game wouldn't be where it's at."
