After seven years at Everton, it was announced on 28 November 2013 that Duggan had signed with Manchester City.[8] 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.[9] She was part of the team when Manchester City played in the Women's Champions League for the first time.[10] In November 2016, Duggan scored a noted goal in City's Champions League match with Brøndby.[11]
