Samuel Charles Bellamy (2 November 1913 – after 1946) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham.[1]

Bellamy was born in the Small Heath district of Birmingham. A right back, he played local football before joining Birmingham in 1937.[2] He made his first and only competitive appearance for the club in the First Division on 13 November 1937, deputising for Cyril Trigg in a home game against Blackpool which Birmingham won 3–0.[3] Bellamy's career was disrupted by the Second World War.[2] He played occasionally for Birmingham in the various wartime competitions,[4] then moved on to Tamworth in 1947.[2]
