Romeo Beckham trolled in loss to minnows Hendon before David makes swift exit
DAVID BECKHAM made a swift exit after watching son Romeo suffer cup disappointment with Brentford at non-league Hendon.
Former England captain Becks was decked out in a beige coat, black hat, jeans and white trainers as he headed to a raucous Silver Jubilee Park in Brent last night.
But both the Inter Miami owner, who has regularly watched his son over recent weeks, and his 20-year-old boy endured a disappointing evening after the Southern League Premier Division South team sprung an upset.
Romeo, who moved to Brentford’s B team on loan from Inter Miami in January, was named on the bench for the London Senior Cup quarter-final.
J’Neil Bennett’s well-taken penalty gave the visitors the advantage following a goalless first half, before Niko Muir equalised midway through the second period.
With the game tied at 1-1, the Bees turned to the attacker from the bench in an attempt to try and win it.
And there would be a late twist in store – but it was not the one Romeo and Brentford were hoping for.
Muir turned home Dave Diedhiou’s header at the death before Hendon added a third deep into additional time through Shaun Lucien to seal a 3-1 victory.
And despondent looking Romeo received no sympathy from the home supporters as he trudged off the pitch as they chanted: “Romeo Beckham, it’s all your fault.”
Beckham watched all of the action from the stands, but he was spotted making a sharp exit after the third goal.

Right midfielder Romeo has been with his dad’s MLS side Inter Miami since 2021.
He has made 20 appearances for the American outfit’s second side – who play in the third tier – scoring two goals.
Romeo first trained with the Bees’ B side in October and has been working with the club regularly since the end of the 2022 MLS Next Pro campaign before officially moving on loan.
He had scored two goals and provided 10 assists to help Inter Miami II to sixth in the MLS Next Pro Eastern Conference last season.
He was once on Arsenal’s books alongside brothers Brooklyn and Cruz but was released in 2014.
After a five year absence, Romeo returned to his footballing roots and in 2021 signed for his dad’s MLS side.
Meanwhile Romeo’s brother Brooklyn, 23, gave up from playing altogether after being released by the Gunners aged 16.
He told Variety that he stopped playing after realising it would be “difficult” to live up to his dad.
David, 47, who played 115 times for England, “wasn’t sad” to see budding chef Brooklyn quit as he wanted his son “to be happy”.
And as revealed by SunSport, Romeo is poised to feature in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Ukraine ahead of the country’s Euro 2024 qualifier with England.
Brentford have opened up their training ground to the Ukrainians and their B team will play the warm-up game on March 23.
