Sports Legends with Bevo – Ep #27 – Shaun ‘Silk’ Burgoyne – The Silk dynamo lights up the AFL sky with four-Time Premiership brilliance!

In the realm of Australian Rules Football, few names shine as brightly as Shaun Burgoyne. A four-time premiership star, Burgoyne has etched his name into AFL history with a career marked by skill, resilience, and an unyielding commitment to success.

Shaun Burgoyne, affectionately known as “Silk” for his smooth style of play he hailed from a footballing family and played a pivotal role in the Port Adelaide Football Club first ever AFL Premiership in 2004 alongside his brother Peter.

Over his nine seasons with Port Adelaide, Shaun solidified his reputation as a dependable and versatile player. His ability to impact the game both in midfield and across half-back earned him accolades, and he played a pivotal role in Port Adelaide’s 2004 Premiership triumph.

In 2009, he made a high-profile move to the Hawthorn Football Club, a decision that would prove instrumental in his pursuit of further premiership glory. Joining a team on the cusp of a dynasty, Burgoyne’s experience and leadership qualities played a crucial role in the Hawks’ three consecutive premierships from 2013 to 2015.

On our chat we discussed some of Silk’s amazing career highlights, his footy journey from Mallee Park to playing AFL, his funniest team mates along the way and whether there were any regrets about leaving Port to play at the Hawks.
