Daniel Beltrame (born 28 December 1975 in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia) is a former Australian goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

His first senior semi-professional that he played for was Campbelltown City SC in the South Australia Super League until 1994. Beltrame then relocated to New South Wales to play for Port Kembla in the Illawarra league before joining National Soccer League club Wollongong Wolves in 1997. In four seasons with the Wolves, Beltrame made just 16 starting appearances, often finding himself behind Grant Barlow, Dean Anastasiadis and Les Pogliacomi for the number one jersey as Wollongong won both the 1999–2000 and 2000–01 NSL titles. The Wolves subsequently progressed to and won the 2000–01 Oceania Club Championship. Beltrame was rotated with Barlow throughout the tournament,[1] scoring a goal in Wollongong's 16–0 win over Lotoha'pai FC[2] and starring in the 1–0 victory over Tafea FC which secured the title for Wollongong.[3]

Beltrame made the switch to Newcastle United at the end of the 2000–01 season,[4] and was regular goalkeeper for the team in 2001–02 as they became the most successful Newcastle team ever by finishing second on the ladder whilst conceding the least goals of any team for the year.[5] Beltrame was nominated for NSL Goalkeeper of the Year in 2002–03 despite missing several weeks due to a shoulder injury, before transferring to Parramatta Power for 2003–04. However, he suffered a major injury prior to the start of the season, and was forced to sit out the year behind Clint Bolton as Parramatta finished as runners-up. With the end of the NSL, Beltrame played the 2004 season with the Corrimal Rangers in the Illawarra Conference League, before rejoining Wollongong to play in the New South Wales Premier League. The launch of the A-League gave Beltrame the opportunity to return to his home city, and he signed with Adelaide United FC for two seasons.[6] In the 2005–06 season, Beltrame played 14 of Adelaide's 24 matches as the team went on to win the inaugural A-League premiership. In the preliminary final against Newcastle Jets at Hindmarsh Stadium in February 2007 he saved 2 pens from Vaughan Coveny and Stuart Musialik to give Adelaide the victory.
