Player description
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.

Bettinelli agreed a two-year extension to his Fulham contract on 10 January 2014, which would keep him at the club until June 2016.

He made his debut for the club on 26 August in the second round of the League Cup away to West London rivals Brentford, keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 victory.

Four days later he made his league debut for Fulham in the Championship, a 1–1 home draw with Cardiff City.

On 5 December, he was sent off after 18 minutes in a 5–0 loss to Watford at Craven Cottage for fouling Matej Vydra, conceding a penalty that Troy Deeney put past substitute goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly.

Bettinelli signed another contract extension on 30 August 2017, keeping him at Fulham until June 2020 with an option in the club's favour to extend for a further year.

He was second-choice to David Button for all but the last six matches of the 2016–17 Championship season and thought that his Fulham career was over, but manager Slavisa Jokanovic eventually made him the starting goalkeeper for the following season.

Fulham finished third and qualified for the play-offs, defeating Derby County 2–1 on aggregate in the semi-final and Aston Villa 1–0 in the final at Wembley Stadium.

In October 2018, Bettinelli signed a new contract to last until 2021.

For 2018–19, he lost his place to on-loan Spaniard Sergio Rico shortly before Jokanovic's dismissal in November, and the situation remained the same under new manager Claudio Ranieri.

He ended his season in February 2019 when he was ruled out for six months following a knee operation.

In 2019-20 he appeared for Fulham 14 times before losing his place to Marek Rodak in November 2019.

On 10th September 2020, Bettinelli joined Championship club Middlesbrough on a season-long loan deal. During the season Marcus played 42 times recording 13 clean sheets and collecting 3 yellow cards.
