Peter Berbakov showed skill and had a cool head on the backline.

His selection by Essendon in the 1995 December draft was a just reward for a great year with their Reserves as a supplementary list playe. In 1996, he debuted in Round 1 and played nearly every game early for the year, playing well on some very tough opponents. Towards the end of the season his form slipped a little, and he was in and out of the senior side.

At 23 he appeared to have the potential to become an solid defender for years to come, and he was a consistent contributor in 1999 until the 8th round when he had a bad ankle injury which kept him out of football for the remainder of the season.

Berbakov's bad luck continued into 2000 and he did not play a senior game for the season. The popular clubman was delisted at the end of the 2000 season.

He had lived for some years in Papua New Guinea as a boy.
