Defender who was recruited by the Swans from Sandringham via a stint in the Hawthorn Under 19s and Reserves, Duursma played two seasons in Sydney before being sent to Brisbane for the Bears inaugural season after the Swans ran into salary cap trouble. He managed just one game up North and returned to Victoria to play with the Demons.

John Northey's faith in the Bear 'reject' was repaid with Duursma having his most successful stint, featuring in the 1988 Grand Final side. He also received plaudits for his job on the dangerous Stephen Kernahan in that year's Preliminary Final.

Persistent knee injuries ended his top level career at the end of 1989 and he rejoined Sandringham, where he was captain in 1991. He played 24 games in total for the Zebras. Won a Goulburn Valley League flag with Rochester in 1992. Aged 37 he was still playing for Tyabb in the Mornington Peninsula League in season 2000.

Appeared in a 1990 Reserves game wearing number 52.

Duursma's brother Dean was an Under 19's player in 1986 and remained on the list until 1988 but didn't play seniors.
