Duxbury began his career at Accrington Stanley, but sprang to prominence at Preston North End. He made his Preston debut at Burnden Park on 4th April 1921 as North End were beaten 0-3 by Bolton Wanderers. By the time he joined Leeds in June 1924, he had already appeared in an F.A. Cup Final. He was a member of the Preston North End team which lost to Huddersfield Town in the controversial 1922 Cup Final at Stamford Bridge. He made fifty-one League appearances for Preston and scored one goal, before he joined Leeds. However, his time at Elland Road was not successful, as, after making his debut, he soon found Harry Sherwin and Jim Baker in charge of the number four jersey. When Willis Edwards arrived on the scene, in March 1925, his first team chances were over and he moved to Non-League Fleetwood in 1926.
