The goalkeeper signed for the Gas in the summer of 2021 - arriving at the Men after a spell at Harrogate Town.

Belshaw's professional journey began by joining Nuneaton Burrough in the National League, but it was at his next club, Tamworth Town where Belshaw really began to rack up game time, making 113 appearances in the National League North for his side.

A switch in summer 2017 to Harrogate Town paved the way for the Nottingham-born 'keeper to make bigger waves.

His first season brought with it a phenomenal achievement as he helped Harrogate Town to promotion to the National League for the first time in their history after winning the National League North Play-Off final. 

In the 2019/20 season, Belshaw's side would go one further, once again heading deep into the play-offs at the end of a hectic campaign, where they would clash with Notts County, the club Belshaw has supported since childhood. Belshaw's Harrogate side came out on top, securing promotion to League Two.

Belshaw completed a move to Bristol Rovers after one season in League Two with his Harrogate Town side. The 30-year-old featured as a trialist in the Gas' pre-season draw with Plymouth Argyle, impressing with his confidence, communication and consistency.
