Burditt started with his local junior club Ibstock Penistone Rovers before turning professional with Third Division South Norwich City in the 1933-34 season. He did not play a first team game with the Canaries and before the following season started he moved to Second Division Nottingham Forest. He had two seasons at the City Ground and scored ten goals in eighteen League appearances and two F.A. Cup ties. He joined Third Division South Millwall at the start of the 1936-37 season but had just one game at Inside Right before departing for Third Division North side Wrexham where he enjoyed two very productive seasons scoring thirty-five goals in sixty-seven League games and two more goals in three F.A. Cup appearances. He joined another Third Division North side in Doncaster Rovers for the 1939-40 season but did not make a League appearance before World War Two brought an end to Football League games. He was a guest with Leeds United in the 1940-41 season during World War Two. He made eight appearances in the North Regional League, scoring three goals and also made one appearance in the War Cup without scoring. He made his debut against Middlesbrough in a 0-2 defeat at Ayresome Park in the War Cup, making his League debut and getting his first goal for Leeds a fortnight later in a 3-2 home win against Sheffield Wednesday and played his last game co-incidentally at Ayresome Park in a 2-3 defeat on 17th May 1941. He only played one other game during the War and that was for Doncaster Rovers in 1945-46 and he did not score. He did not play professionally after the War. He died in 1981.
