Duthoit was signed from West Riding Amateur League Club, Carlton United in April 1945 and made twenty-one wartime appearances for Leeds. The games were four consecutive games at Right Back in the 1944-45 Football League Northern Section (Second Championship) starting on 14th April 1945 with a 6-2 home win over Hull City, then two games with Barnsley which they won 3-1 at Oakwell but lost 1-3 at Elland Road and the fourth game resulting in a 0-6 humbling by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The other seventeen appearances came in the 1945-46 Football League Northern Section, when he played at Right Back in all games with the first being in the second game of the season in a 1-3 home loss to Chesterfield and then he returned for the fifteenth game at Old Trafford and a 1-6 beating by Manchester United and that was the first of sixteen consecutive matches which ended at Elland Road on 2nd March 1946 with a 1-4 defeat by Blackburn Rovers. Like Frank Butterworth and Cyril Coyne, his only peace-time appearances were when he played both Legs of the Two-legged F.A. Third Round Cup-tie with Middlesbrough in the 1945-46 season. He worked as an electrical engineer and played as an amateur. Leeds did not reckon he would be up to First Division standard and he moved to York City in May 1946 finishing his League career there in May 1949. After thirty-six games for York he moved to Non-League Boston United in June 1950 and played until 1953. He died in Boston Lincolnshire in November 2001.
