Record Crowd As Romeo Beckham Makes Brentford Debut

OLD Trafford. San Siro. Bernabeu. Parc des Princes. The name Beckham has graced some of the most famous stadiums in world football.

Now there is a new ground to add to the list – Park View Road, Welling.

The home of ninth-tier side Erith & Belvedere is where Romeo Beckham, son of former England captain David, made his debut for Brentford B in a London Senior Cup match on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old, who has joined on loan from Inter Miami II until the end of the season, came on as a second-half substitute with the Bees trailing 2-1, before a late comeback brought a 3-2 win.

The Beckham effect certainly had an impact off the pitch too, with a club record 554 fans making an appearance on a cold, soggy evening in south east London.

Watching on among that crowd, hidden under the hood of a black raincoat, was father David, who saw his son continue the Beckham tradition by putting in a dangerous cross from the right wing – a moment the admin of the Erith & Belvedere FC Twitter account was not going to miss.
