Marvin Ducksch, who played for Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team throughout the last season, has signed a contract with FC St. Pauli.
According to a statement issued by St. Pauli, Ducksch’s contract will be for a period of three years. St. Pauli are currently playing in the 2. Bundesliga, Germany’s second league.
The centre-forward is a Dortmund youth product. He made his first appearance for the Bundesliga team in 2013, with five more Bundesliga appearances afterwards. But the Dortmund-native never established himself as a reliable option. In the 2014-15 season, he played on loan at Paderborn where he suffered a foot injury that kept him sidelined for almost the entire Rückrunde.
After his return to Dortmund last summer, Ducksch solely played for the reserve team, scoring 15 goals in 28 matches.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge at FC St. Pauli and the opportunity to play in front many people again,” Ducksch said in the club’s official statement. “Of course, it is perfect that with Lasse Sobiech, Marc Hornschuh and Jeremy Dudziak I already know three players on the team personally.”
“We’ve had Marvin in mind for a long time and are now happy that we’ve signed him. We are convinced that he will enhance our attacking game due to his qualities in front of the goal”, Thomas Meggle, St. Pauli’s manager, added.
