Appearances: 43 (43/0) Goals: 1
Stratford (London) born Bellett arrived at Home Park in December 1958 from Chelsea, part of a £15,000 deal that also included Len Casey. The stocky left-back had played 35 First Division games and won an England Youth international cap whilst at the London club, before his 43 appearances and one goal for Argyle. He briefly hit the headlines when, after hitting four goals as a centre-forward in a reserve game, Chairman Ron Blindell insisted that he should be given the number 9 shirt against West Bromwich Albion in an FA Cup tie. The experiment was not a success. He was released in 1960 and briefly re-joined his first club, non-league Chelmsford City, before going on to Leyton Orient, Chester, Wrexham and Tranmere. In 1964 he returned to the South East and turned out for Gravesend.
