After his apprenticeship with Watford, Burgess, a right-back, was unable to break into the first team at Vicarage Road and he moved on to Torquay United. Despite playing regularly over the next three seasons at Plainmoor, he joined Argyle on a free transfer in 1968. A cartilage injury suffered during his first year at Home Park prevented him from securing a regular first-team place and he transferred to Colchester United. He retired 18 months later, scoring for Colchester on his last game for the club.
