Club careerEdit

After emerging through local Valencia CF's youth system, Valencia-born Bellvís made his professional debut for Valencian Community neighbours Elche CF, playing two seasons on loan in the second division. Subsequently, he moved in the same situation to CD Numancia,[2] making his La Liga debut on 31 August 2008 in a shock 1–0 home win against FC Barcelona.[3]

After Numancia's relegation, Bellvís cut all ties with Valencia and signed a three-year contract for CD Tenerife in mid-July 2009.[4] He suffered two consecutive relegations with the Canary Islands club, being only a backup in both seasons.[5]

After contributing with 21 matches as his next team, RC Celta de Vigo,[6] returned to the top level at the end of the 2011–12 campaign as runners-up,[7] Bellvís was only third or fourth-choice in the following years, being deployed occasionally as a right-back and also suffering a fracture to his zygomatic bone in September 2013 during a match at Getafe CF, after a collision with Diego Castro.[8] After leaving in January 2014 he resumed his career in the second tier, with SD Ponferradina[9] and AD Alcorcón.[10]
