Playing career[edit]

At the end of his career as a footballer he also had a short stay at the Norwegian amateur side Heming.

His impact on football abroad has been limited, with only short spells in Southend United, AaB and Austria Vienna.

Managing career[edit]

After finishing his playing career he was hired as an assistant coach in Stabæk. After Stabæk won the league in 2008, Belsvik became an assistant for Lillestrøm in 2009, taking briefly over as caretaker head coach in 2011.
