David Beckham spotted watching son Romeo make Brentford debut against 9th tier club

David Beckham was spotted on Tuesday night watching his son Romeo make his Brentford B debut against a club in the 9th tier.

The former Manchester United and England international had to jump over fences and sneak through bushes while also trying to escape attention from fans so that he could check out Romeo, who is David’s middle son.

The youngster had recently signed a loan deal with the West London outfit from Inter Miami II, as speculated a few months ago.

Romeo, 20, made his debut in the Brentford second string clash against non league outfit Erith & Belvedere.

David could be seen wearing a navy waterproof jacket and had his hood up as it chucked it down while his son played in the London Senior Cup match.

The former footballer was apparently not too keen on the countless requests for selfies or handshakes from the group of fans.

He jumped over the fence and climbed out of the stand to escape Park View Road.

However, he wasn’t subtle in his sudden exit, which was seen by many of the 554 spectators, lots wanting to see the two Beckhams.

When leaving the stand, Becks climbed over a wooden fence to escape. He then waded through some bushes.

David was not seen again after he left the stand.

It could have been quite costly, but it was possible that his expensive jacket was damaged by the shrubs.

After coming off the bench in the second half, Romeo couldn’t manage a goal, but played a big part in helping his team to win a dramatic 3-2 victory against Erith.

However, he wasn’t the only son of an ex-Prem star to feature, with the offspring of Kevin Lisbie and Paul Dickov also amongst the Brentford substitutes, with Kyreece Lisbie coming on with Beckham.

Lisbie, who netted an equaliser in the game, joined Brentford from Watford in the summer, signing a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months after previous spells at Cray Valley PM and Leyton Orient

Paul Dickov’s son Max was subbed on 10 minutes after Lisbie and Bekcks having joined the club in the summer on a one-year deal with the option of another year.

After impressing training with them, Romeo signed for Brentford.

The Bees will keep the right-sided midfielder until the end and is hopeful that he will catch the eye of Thomas Frank.

He said: “I’m very proud and very happy to be here.

“I came here at the start to keep fit during the off season.

“The chance then came to come on loan here and I’ve never been so excited.

“It was a fun season [in the USA] and there were a lot of ups and downs.

“But I’m excited to come here and see what I can do.”

When asked about training with the B-team, he added: “I’ve loved it.

“They’re such nice boys and have good energy.

“I love coming in every day seeing them and getting to train every day with them is fun.

“They are all very talented players, and they drive me to be even better in myself.

“A few of them give me some kicks and I give them back, but we all come into work hard to get better in ourselves and the coaches drive that.

“They’ve [MacFarlane and Saunders] helped me massively over the last couple of months and I’m excited to see what else they can help me with to really progress in football.

“If you look at Brentford as a club, it’s very positive and it’s a club that is on the rise very quickly.

“I’m very grateful to be here.”

He concluded: “I love how we have the opportunity to play at different levels, both abroad and here.

“We go across to play some men’s teams and it’s a good experience. [I want] to get the experience to play against men and get physically stronger and we’ll see how that can progress me.”

Frank praised Romeo Beckham and suggested he could stay beyond his loan spell from Inter Miami.

Yeah, I’ve seen him.. I think he’s an interesting player.

“We hope, of course, like a lot of others that he can make it to the first team.

“Yeah, [he is] promising. Anyone who has got a contract here – be it a permanent deal or loan deal – there is always the opportunity to stay, of course.”

Romeo’s Dad congratulated his son on Instagram as he said: “Exciting start to the year. Now the hard work and fun begins. Proud of you mate.”

After signing Romeo, Brentford B head coach Neil McFarlane said: “We have been absolutely delighted with Romeo since he arrived with us.

“He came to us from Inter Miami with the aim of working with us during their close season. Romeo has applied himself unbelievably well, he’s really bought into the culture and the group which he has become a big part of.

“I love his standards and the way he conducts himself on and off the pitch.

“He’s been able to get fitter and fitter during his time with us and it leaves him in a good place to now step forward having joined us on loan.”
