Brisbane Strikers Squad Profiles: 13 Sean Burke

Jul 18, 2012 by

Having arrived at the Brisbane Strikers from the North Queensland Razorbacks as an established QSL midfielder in 2010, Burke has found himself playing mostly as a forward since domiciling himself in Brisbane. He has handled the conversion with distinction. A return of 26 goals from 46 games is one that most strikers would be happy with, but Burke is equally at home as a provider of goals and his overall value to the team in terms of infusing it with aggression and enthusiasm cannot be underestimated. Although lightly-framed, Burke is strong when he needs to hold the ball up under pressure from bigger defenders, while his scorching pace and speed on the turn give defenders nightmares.
