Brave off his line and when taking crosses, Marcus Bettinelli has worked tirelessly on all aspects of his game. An excellent communicator too, the player’s voice is often one of the loudest out on the pitch.

In October 2012, Marcus was rewarded with a contract extension which will see him at the Club until June 2014. That same month, he agreed a loan at Conference Premier side Dartford where he quickly became first choice until his return to Fulham in March 2013 and he was called out on an emergency one-month loan to Accrington Stanley in August 2013 before the club extended it until the end of the season. He was recalled by Fulham on Boxing Day 2013 following an injury to Maarten Stekelenburg and took his place on the substitutes' bench as the Whites won 2-1 at Norwich City.

Returned to Stanley where he continued to impress as the Lancashire outfit moved clear of the League Two relegation places. His form saw him named Accrington's Young Player of the Season.

His father, Vic, is Fulham’s Academy Goalkeeping Coach.
