David Beckham takes break from Inter Miami prep as he watches son Romeo play at tiny Somerset club Clevedon Town AFC – The Sun
DAVID BECKHAM swapped the luxury of Miami for Clevedon Town's Everyone Active Stadium last night as he made a shock appearance to watch his son Romeo play against the lowly Somerset club.
The England legend has been gearing up for Inter Miami's long-awaited MLS debut next month – but he still made time to watch his 17-year-old turn out for Millfield under-18s.
And the 44-year-old, donning a green parka jacket and cap, stood alone pitchside as he supported his son.
After the match, Becks was generous with his time, grinning ear-to-ear and posing for pictures with the starstruck youngsters.
He was even spotted before the match grabbing a pre-match snack in Clevedon's local Tesco, as he fuelled up his car.
Unfortunately for the Beckhams, the exciting match finished in a 5-3 defeat.
And despite Romeo picking up a yellow card, he seemed to put in a good performance for his old man.
Bristol City's loan manager Brian Tinnion, also in attendance at the low-key match, tweeted after the game: "Nice to see David Beckham here tonight @ClevedonTownFC watching his son Romeo playing for Millfield school and he is good."
The 17-year-old, adorning floppy hair reminiscent of a young David himself, may not have won the game – but the attendance of his world-famous father made it an occasion to remember.
The next match that David takes in is likely to be across the pond, with Inter Miami's long awaited MLS franchise debut set for March 1 when they travel to LAFC.
And the first match at their temporary home in Fort Lauderdale will be a fortnight later against LA Galaxy.
Despite having been linked with a whole host of high-profile players, Inter go in to their maiden season with a squad made up of predominantly seasoned MLS campaigners.
The only players with experience in Britain are former Celtic man Lewis Morgan and Juan Agudelo – who had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it spell at Stoke in 2014.
Beckham has been working hard on the project since 2012, and will have been proud to see his team finally taking to the turf at their luxury £50million training complex this week.
Inter will play their home games in Fort Lauderdale until 2022 – when their state of the art downtown Miami Freedom Park stadium will be completed.
Whether or not they will still be referred to as "Inter" by that point is unknown, however, as Italian giants Inter Milan attempt to sue the league for trademark infringement.
