Biography: Burchill arrived at Fratton Park having made a fantastic start to his career at Celtic. He had scored 20 goals in only 17 starts and earned a call up to the Scottish national side. He signed for Pompey in a £600,000 deal but suffered a knee injury after only a couple of games and never fully regained his place in the side. He returned to Scotland to join Kilmarnock in July 2009 and became assistant manager at home town club Livingston in 2014. Latterly worked with former Pompey teammate Eddie Howe as Chief Scout at Bournemouth. Harry Redknapp was quoted as saying 'Good lad, but I can’t find a role for him’.
