One of the true new "characters" to have emerged in recent years.
"Bulldog's" tales of curious and unique culinary tastes are
legendary, as is his prowess at the game. Had an impressive run in 2000
which took him to the final of the World Grand Prix. That achievement
was both a blessing and a curse for the Bulldog, who caught Phil Taylor
on a bad day and instead of sweeping the then eight times world champion
aside, lost his cool and with it the chance of a world title. Since then
Burgess has struggled with his darts and suffered heartbreaking exits
in the first round of the World Champs and 2001 World Matchplay. Returned
to form in time for the 2002 Skol World Championships, although came up
against Phil Taylor in record breaking form in the second round. No one
in the world could have beaten the Power that day (averaging 111!) and
Shayne did himself great credit to play his own game despite the mauling.
In 2003 Shayne worked his way to the final of the UK Open, again catching
Taylor in unbeatable form, and coming runner-up. All thoughts of the Hastings
ace giving up the game are now long forgotten, and having regained his
form and unique style, Shayne is looking forward to a successful and prosperous
year in 2006, under new sponsorship from gfcuk.com
