Did You Know? The Hangover is Shane's favourite film!

He joined Everton in November 2008 as a first-year scholar and worked his way through the U-1 and reserve teams. Manager David Moyes named him and several young players in the first team for the pre-season friendlies and Duffy scored his first Everton goal against Rochdale in a 4–0 victory.

He made his professional debut versus AEK Athens in the UEFA Europa League in December 2009, coming on for the injured Sylvain Distin. In Everton's next European fixture, Duffy made his home debut at Goodison Park, completing the full 90 minutes against BATE Borisov.

He joined Burnley on loan on 24 March 2011 on an initial 28 day loan with the possibility of an extension until the end of the 2010–11 season. Duffy made his debut for Burnley on 2 April 2011 in the 2–1 defeat to Ipswich Town, playing the full 90 minutes.

He joined Scunthorpe on loan on 1 September 2011. He made his debut on 10 September against Sheffield United, winning the Man of the Match award.

Duffy was recalled by Everton due to an injury picked up by Phil Jagielka. He made his Premier League debut at White Hart Lane on 11 January 2012, coming on as a substitute for the final 30 minutes in a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

Duffy's first team chance's were limited in 2014 and his chances of going out on loan became rstricted due to the small size of Everton's squad.
