Hartlepool: Duckworth signs from Bradford Park Avenue

Hartlepool United

Hartlepool United have signed right-back Michael Duckworth from Bradford Park Avenue after a successful trial.

The 21-year-old defender played in the League Two club's pre-season friendlies against Whitby Town, Billingham Town and Preston North End.

A former York City trainee, he has also played in both of Hartlepool's reserve-team games this season.

Hartlepool will face Fleetwood Town at Victoria Park on Saturday and Duckworth could go straight into the squad.
