Er, so what is DUCK magazine?

Basically, a much-loved monthly magazine devoted to

Stoke City, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, football, sport, music, clothes, love, life, hope –  in short, everything that matters.

Born in April 2013, from the editor’s desires to produce a mag that they would want to seek out and buy, DUCK has received 100% superb feedback and is now virtually a family member to us. Colourful, glossy, sharp, nostalgic, timeless and current. That’s DUCK.

To stand at matches or get emails and messages thanking us for our efforts or saying how much DUCK has been enjoyed is what we’re all about. Every single article is written from the heart by our fantastic contributors.

Ah, our contributors. Magazines are only as good as the good folk who write for them. So, in that respect, we are truly blessed. Stokies, non-Stokies, journalists, bus drivers, famous authors, Michelin-starred chefs, musicians, blokes down the pub, pop stars, national radio DJ’s, ladies with an attitude, ex-players, agents….. they’ve all written for us. We’re a broad, welcoming church. You’re just as likely to get an article on those weirdos who star at you on trains, yes THOSE weirdos, or debate about which Massimo Osti creation is the best, as an interview with Bojan, Denis Smith, Mike Sheron, Ricardo Fuller, or Neil Baldwin.


Our reader’s and writer’s lives have far more than football and Stoke City in them; and so does DUCK. But football and Stoke City is the glue that holds it all together as they are such a huge and vital part of our lives. But it’s about far, far more than the ninety minutes, isn’t it?

Want to write for DUCK? Ace. From the heart please, and you won’t go far wrong.

Want to buy DUCK? Don’t blame you, we love producing it as much as others seem to enjoy reading it. You can also belong to the growing number of subscribers too, and get your own competitions, badges and the magazine before anyone else.
