His only first-team appearance was on 20 October 1976, while still a schoolboy aged 16 years 22 days, as a substitute in the Anglo-Scottish Cup against Ayr United.[4] He moved on to Second Division club Queens Park Rangers in September 1979 for a fee of £125,000, and made his debut in the Football League on 7 September in a 3–0 win at home to Fulham.[5] He played quite frequently at the beginning of his QPR career, and came on as substitute in the 1982 FA Cup Final replay, which QPR lost to Tottenham Hotspur.[6] He had several loan spells towards the end of his QPR career – at Millwall from October to December 1983,[7] at Notts County from October to December 1984,[8] at Lincoln City from August to September 1985, and at Brentford from March to May 1986[9] – before leaving the club at the end of the 1985–86 season on a free transfer to Doncaster Rovers.[10] He finished his League career with two seasons at Doncaster, including a loan spell at Stockport County.[1][3] Burke’s senior career finished in Non-League football, turning out for Shepshed Charterhouse and Grantham Town.[11]
