As a father, Romeo Beckham makes his Brentford B debut. David looks on.

The stadium at Old Trafford. The San Siro. Bernabeu. The Princes’ Park. Beckham’s name has graced some of the world’s most famous stadiums.

Park View Road, Welling, is the latest addition to the list.

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

The 20-year-old, 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 gave them a 3-2 victory.

The Beckham effect was felt off the field as well, with a club record 554 fans attending on a cold, rainy evening in south east London.

Father David, hidden beneath the hood of a black raincoat among the crowd, 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 would not miss.
