When Dick Duckworth signed for Manchester United he was on a wage of 7s.6d. On average around £20 in todays money. He originally signed as an inside-forward but soon got moved to the half-back position, from here Duckworth formed a formidable midfield partnership with Charlie Roberts and Alex Bell.
So successfull was the the trio in midfield United won the League Championship in 1908 and 1911, also adding the FA Cup in 1909 aswell.
Duckworth picked up an injury that would put an end to his career in 1913
