Burgess progressed through the Academy system at Bury FC, penning his first professional contract with the club in the summer of 2015, 12 months after making his debut in a draw away to Morecambe at the age of 16.

After multiple loan spells at the likes of Macclesfield Town, Wrexham, York City and a short spell at Norwegian club Bergsoy, Burgess signed for Port Vale in May 2019, joining his former manager John Askey who had previously managed him at The Silkmen. During his time at the Valiants, Burgess made a total of 62 appearances in all competitions, scoring on four occasions and was also nominated for the club’s Young Player of the Year for the 2019/20 campaign.
