Signed from: Stourbridge
Brakes Debut: 16/08/08 @ Aylesbury United - Southern League Midland Division (Sponsored by British Gas Business) - Won 2-1
2008/2009: 44 starts, 3 sub appearances, 47 goals
2009/2010: 37 starts, 3 sub appearances, 32 goals
Put simply, Mark Bellingham is probably the most prolific Brakes goalscorer of all time, certainly of the modern era. Signed from our big rivals at the time, Stourbridge, his strike partnership with fellow new boy Luke Corbett accounted for 70 of the 114 league goals scored by Leamington as they won a fifth promotion in nine seasons.
'Bello' netted six hat tricks during that memorable season, including two in the final two games, and he continued his astonishing ratio as Leamington lined up in the Southern League Premier Division in 2009/10 for the first time in 24 years, and he finished his time at the New Windmill Ground with nearly a goal a game. A real non league goalscoring legend who certainly left his mark on Leamington!
