At the first AGM of Wests in 1909, Ted Mead and Lawrence Duncan were elected captains of First and Reserve Grade respectively.

Lawrence Duncan was recorded as L. Duncan and S. Duncan at various times. Newspaper reports of Wests AGM recorded him as L. Duncan which is the most likely account.

Available records indicate that Lawrence lived in the suburb of Five Dock in 1909, which is within Wests territory.

Lawrence Duncan played one First Grade game for Wests in 1909 and was a reserve for First Grade in 1908.

As Captain of the Reserve Grade team in 1909, it is likely that he played more lower grade games for Wests.  However, there is only scant reporting on these teams.
