Walter Bellamy

A prominent amateur in his early days, Walter Bellamy played for the Amateurs v. Professionals in two F.A. Charity Shield contests, represented Middlesex, and won two England amateur international caps against Ireland in 1926 and 1927.

The Tottenham-born winger made his name in the Isthmian League with Ilford, Tufnell Park and Dulwich Hamlet, and caught the eye of the Spurs management who signed him as a professional in February 1927. Playing mainly as a reserve, he remained at White Hart Lane for more than eight years, but did appear in 73 League and Cup games before being released to join the Albion in September 1935. A speedy, direct outside-left, Walter acted as deputy to Bert Stephens throughout 1935-36 but was released at the end of the campaign.

He later played for New Camp F.C. while serving in Gibraltar during the early part of the war, and ran a heating-oil business in London for many years.

Walter played 3 matches for the Seagulls in 1935-36.
