David Beckham watches son play at non league club

David Beckham watches son play at non league club Clevedon Town on Wednesday night, putting his preparations for Inter Miami’s MLS debut on hold.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder paid the £3 admission fee to cheer on his 17-year-old son Romeo from the stands as he played for his school’s under 18s in a friendly in Somerset.

His side ended up losing 5-3 to the young Clevedon side, but he still managed to impress onlookers with his performance, even if he did get himself a booking.

Beckham posed for the team picture with the winning team at the end of the match where he also took the time to speak to Romeo and his teammates before they left the stadium.

As many heard that he was in town, professional magician Seb Farr also turned up at the ground to take up the once in a lifetime opportunity.

He said: “When I heard he was in Clevedon, I literally just picked up a deck of cards, got in the car and took a chance.

“I waited for an hour for the football match to finish and caught glimpses of him in the crowd.

“I saw him walking out and asked him for two minutes of his time, to which he obliged.

“I felt so nervous performing for someone who is such a global icon, but life is full of risks, right?

“If you don’t take them, you’ll never get the reward.

“He was truly lovely bloke, even went out of his way to comment on my Instagram.

“I did slip him a business card too, so here’s hoping he flies me over to LA to perform at a star-studded party, aye?

“It marked a milestone in my magic career, that’s for sure.”

Another local resident, Nick Wilson, got a selfie with him as he went into the service station kiosk.

Becks filled up at the pumps before going into the kiosk to pay whilst also buying some food.

Nick, a Liverpool fan, said: “I was a little stepped back yes, another customer said hey David can you wait whilst I get my phone.

“I recognised him by the tattoo on the back of his neck.

“I’ve been a fan of his for many years, so was awesome to say hello.

“He is a legend, although I’m a big Liverpool fan.

“The woman behind the till almost fainted when she asked me who it was.”
