Youth career

Burgoyne signed for Wolves at twelve, having had unsuccessful trials at other local clubs. During the first year of his scholarship he was briefly loaned out to Doncaster Rovers, and appeared for them in an FA Youth Cup match against Manchester City. During the 2014-15 season he was given a Wolves squad number and trained with the first team sometimes, and occasionally travelled with them to away games, or was included in the warm-ups at home games. He was also a nominee for Wolves' Academy Player of the Season for 2014-15, which was won by Regan Upton.

On 17 September 2015, Harry joined Lowestoft Town of the Vanarama National League North, the sixth tier, on a month's loan, continuing to train in Wolverhampton but travelling for matches. Two days later he made his debut for them in a 2-0 win over Chorley. After five games his loan was extended, only for him to be recalled at once to the Wolves Under-21s because of an injury to Jonathan Flatt. After filling in for Flatt for a few games, Harry went straight back out on loan: this time to Corby Town, again in the Vanarama National League North, joining another Wolves loanee, Ben O'Hanlon. This loan ran until 15 December or thereabouts.
