Peter Burgoyne Biography

Friday, 1 July 2022
Jase Burgoyne will make his debut for Port Adelaide in this week's clash against Fremantle.

Jase, the son of 2004 premiership player Peter Burgoyne, was told he would be playing his first game by uncle and 407-game legend Shaun Burgoyne in an emotional announcement.

Wednesday, 27 October 2021
Jase Burgoyne, whose dad, Peter Burgoyne, played in Port Adelaide's 2004 premiership, will nominate as a father-son for the club.
Friday, 23 April 2021
Port Adelaide father-son draft prospect Jase Burgoyne says he calls his father, Peter Burgoyne, before every game.

"He's been there since I started my footy journey and he sits down with me before every game. I'll give him a call before this one," Burgoyne said.

"Then after games we always chat about how I went and the feedback to get better. It's not always positive because he thinks that's the way to do it and to get a thick skin because the AFL environment is pretty cut-throat and he's preparing me for that. All the stuff he's done for me over the years has been a great help."

Thursday, 1 April 2021
Port Adelaide will get a close look at father-son prospect Jase Burgoyne when the talented midfielder joins the club for a week of training this month as part of his NAB AFL Academy program.

Burgoyne, the son of 2004 premiership player Peter Burgoyne and brother of currently-listed Port player Trent, impressed last season at under-18 level for Woodville West Torrens. Horne, meanwhile, shapes as a very early selection after starring in 2020 and graduating to South Adelaide's senior side.

Jacob Surjan says his team was unlucky to be on the receiving end of a crucial late 50m penalty against Nathan Krakouer in the farewell game for club stalwarts Peter Burgoyne and Brendon Lade.

"We were very stiff. We thought that 50m penalty was really soft, but the umpires are going to make the call and that was their call," Surjan said.

"Peter and Ladey have been fantastic servants of our club and as a playing group we should have sent them off on a better note."

Wednesday, 26 August 2009
Port Adelaide stalwarts Brendon Lade and Peter Burgoyne will retire at the end of the season.

"I just haven't got the passion in my heart, and the hunger," Burgoyne said.

"I've played 13 years of AFL footy and then before that I was playing in the SANFL for two or three years and it takes its toll."

Lade spoke of his successful return to football after twice breaking his leg and missing two years of football.

"It does make me proud but as I said to the boys everyone's got a story to tell, something going on in their life, and it's how you deal with that adversity and how you perform each week," Lade said.

Friday, 14 August 2009
Veteran Port Adelaide midfielder Peter Burgoyne will end his stint in the SANFL to play Carlton on Sunday after being dropped due to poor form in a loss to Melbourne in round 15.

"Peter at his best is a fantastic player for us and we'd like to think that he's still got that in him," Power coach Mark Williams said.

"It doesn't matter who you are, what level you play at or what occupation you're in, self-doubt does creep in. I think the emotion of thinking, 'Maybe I'm going to get dropped or 'People are talking about me' and all that stuff might have got to Peter.

"But to have an end-point there and say, 'Yes, I am out of the side and the worst thing that's happened is that I'm back playing with the Maggies and having a kick around there'. I think that's been good for him."

Wednesday, 22 July 2009
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams says neither Josh Carr not Peter Burgoyne will play against the Crows, but Shaun Burgoyne is a big show.

Shaun Burgoyne has not played since suffering severe bone bruising below his knee in the round-three win over Melbourne.

"Shaun's been doing lots and lots of aerobic work away from the track as well," Williams said.

"He's not going to play huge game-time, but we're thinking that 50 per cent of Shaun Burgoyne is probably better than 70 per cent of someone else."

Saturday, 18 July 2009
Dumped Peter Burgoyne has been given seven weeks to salvage his career.

Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams yesterday put Burgoyne on notice by saying if he didn't find form before the end of the season he was unlikely to be offered a new contract.

"It will be up to how he plays until the end of the year," Williams said.

"He's fully aware of that. At the end of last year he knew he had a one-year contract, so it's important for him to go back (to the SANFL), freshen up and play some good games to get back.

"We'd be delighted to have him back in our side because a fresh and in-form Peter Burgoyne fits into our side very easily. We hope in a few weeks time he'll be back showing his best stuff again. If not ..."

Wednesday, 15 July 2009
Criticism of Danyle Pearce, Peter Burgoyne and Josh Carr is unwarranted according to teammate Travis Boak.

The trio have been singled out in the South Australian media following the Power's disappointing performance against Melbourne on Sunday.

"We think Pearcey's been one of our best players, not because he is getting 20-plus possessions or he's not getting 20-plus possessions, but because he's taking another player out of the play and helping someone else like Kane, Dom or David Rodan around the ball," Boak said.

"The guys know that he's probably copped a bit of criticism, but we're right behind him and we're really behind Peter and Carry as well.

"We're going to give Pearcey confidence. We're going to give him the ball and tell him to run. He's strong in mind and he's going to bounce back."

Friday, 10 July 2009
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams says Shaun Burgoyne is only three weeks from a return which will make life easier for the Power's other midfielders in Peter Burgoyne and David Rodan.

"Shaun's knee is feeling better than it was," Williams said.

"Shaun Burgoyne is our best player. Take the best player out of any side and that would show the influence Shaun will have when he comes back into our team.

"It might not be the first week or two, but if we can get him back it will be a significant influence on our game and our results. It also helps Peter Burgoyne or David Rodan and those sort of blokes because it draws attention away from them."

Friday, 17 April 2009
Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams says it will be difficult to beat Hawthorn without the suspended Domenic Cassisi and Peter Burgoyne.
Tuesday, 14 April 2009
Port Adelaide won't contest suspensions to Dom Cassisi and Peter Burgoyne.

Cassisi was offered a one-match ban for striking Melbourne's Lynden Dunn while Burgoyne was given a two-match suspension for kneeing Demon Aaron Davey during the Power's victory at AAMI Stadium on Sunday.

Cassisi and Burgoyne were each given three-match bans, reduced by early guilty pleas.

Thursday, 24 July 2008
Peter Burgoyne is suspended for a week by Port Adelaide's leadership group after what was described as "presenting himself in an unfit manner for training approximately a month ago".

As a result of his suspension Burgoyne will not face the Dockers but will instead be playing for the Port Adelaide Magpies in the SANFL.
