Playing career

Duckworth was a utility player and began his career with Castleton Juniors, subsequently moving on to Rochdale, Manchester United, Oldham Athletic, Chesterfield, Southport, Chester, Rotherham United and York City. At York, he was captain when the team reached the sixth round of the FA Cup.[1]

Managerial career

Duckworth began his managerial career as player-manager with non-league Newark Town. After working as a coach with Chesterfield, he moved to manage York City in March 1950.[2] His last game as York's manager was against Stockport County on 18 October 1952, who he had agreed to join three days earlier, and took up their managerial duties following the game.[1] After four years with the club, he joined Darlington and later Scunthorpe United. During his time at Scunthorpe he steered the club to its highest-ever league finish of 4th in Division Two in 1962. However, the club were relegated two years later, and Duckworth was sacked after a bad start to the following season. It proved to be his last role in club management.[1]

He died in Sheffield in 1983, aged 76.


Duckworth was the nephew of professional footballer Dick Crawshaw, who played in the Football League with Manchester City, Halifax Town and Nelson.[3]
