Duckworth arrived from non-league outfit Bradford Park Avenue on a short-term deal at the end of August after impressing boss Colin Cooper during a pre-season trial.

And the 21-year-old has gone on to make six appearances and earned himself a longer deal.

"I've been very impressed with Michael," Cooper told the club's official website.

"The way he's come in and gone straight in to the team, I think everyone at the football club was keen to tie him down on a full, professional contract for a longer period."

Duckworth added: "Getting a first proper professional contract is brilliant and I'm just so happy to get everything sorted out.

"I think I've fitted in nicely with the group; the lads have been great with me and the gaffer is obviously happy with what he's seen so that's the main thing."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
