Football - Pools bring in Duckworth

Hartlepool have signed their second player in two days with Bradford Park Avenue defender Michael Duckworth completing a permanent move.

PA Sport Report

The 21-year-old right-back has been offered an undisclosed contract following a successful trial at Victoria Park and goes straight into manager Colin Cooper's squad for Saturday's visit of Fleetwood.

Duckworth, a former York trainee, won supporters', players' and manager's player of the year awards at Park Avenue last season.

Pools signed Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan on a month's loan on Wednesday and he too will be in contention for his first appearance against Fleetwood as the club chase their first win of the season.
