David Beckham Takes Photo With Fan at Son's Game
Football legend David Beckham was recently spotted at Silver Jubilee Park in Hendon, cheering on his son Romeo as he played for Brentford B in the London Senior Cup quarter-final. While the younger Beckham came off the bench to play the final 17 minutes of the game, the hosts Hendon managed to secure a 3-1 victory to eliminate the defending champions and progress to the next round.
The match was witnessed by 345 fans in attendance, one of whom was David Beckham himself. The former England captain was happy to pose for a photo with Hendon's matchday secretary, Jeremy Lawrence, who jokingly wrote on Twitter, 'Ok then David. As you asked so nicely'.
When the final whistle was blown, Hendon's official Twitter account confirmed the score and wrote, 'Great to see David Beckham grace our ground tonight ❤️'.
Last Time David Beckham Made the News
Before being spotted at Silver Jubilee Park, David Beckham made the headlines for celebrating the UK's Mother's Day on March 19. While Mother's Day is on May 14 this year, the UK celebrates Mother's Day on the fourth Sunday during the Christian festival of Lent.
On Sunday, David was one of the celebrities from the UK who took to social media to express their love and gratitude to the mothers in their lives.
David, who is 47 years old, paid tribute to his wife Victoria Beckham, mother Sandra, and mother-in-law Jackie Adams, by sharing a series of photos. The snaps captured Victoria with each of their four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper, as well as one with Sandra and Jackie.
In a touching caption, he wrote, "Today we celebrate our Mums ♥️ growing up I couldn't have wished to have more support and more love in my life than my mums x. Then I meet a woman that not only is strong and driven but who is the most amazing mum to our children who inspires them, keeps them grounded and most important thing showers them with love every single minute of every day x".
Romeo Beckham's Appearance in the Match
According to Brentford's match report, Romeo came into the game when the score was tied. This happened after J’Neil Bennett scored a penalty for Brentford B, but Niko Muir equalized for Hendon. The match seemed like it would go to penalties, which is how tied games are resolved.
However, the hosts managed to strike twice at the death, with Muir nabbing his second and Shaun Lucien securing Hendon's third to map out their passage to the semis.
It is unclear who Hendon will face in the next stage of the competition, as a backlog of fixtures means they will have to play one of Welling United, Charlton U21s, or Barking in their bid to make the final.
Romeo Beckham is currently on loan at Brentford B from Inter Miami II, secured his first goal for the club with an injury-time winner against Wealdstone last month. His father, David, seems more comfortable watching him play at Hendon, having previously escaped by climbing a fence after being mobbed by fans in Welling.
