- David Beckham was at Hendon on Monday night to see Romeo Beckham play
- But the 20-year-old’s Brentford B side were eliminated from the cup by Hendon
- Hendon struck twice late on to make the semi-finals of the London Senior Cup
David Beckham was in the main stand at Hendon to see his son Romeo play for Brentford B on Monday night.
The younger Beckham, 20, came off the bench to play the final 17 minutes of their London Senior Cup quarter-final, as Brentford B looked to retain the trophy they won last year.
Instead, they were eliminated by a 3-1 defeat to Southern League Premier Division South Hendon, after two late goals from the hosts.
David Beckham was one of 345 fans in attendance at Silver Jubilee Park on Monday night, and he was happy to pose for a photo with Hendon’s matchday secretary Jeremy Lawrence.
Lawrence jokingly wrote: ‘Ok then David. As you asked so nicely’.

When the final whistle was blown, Hendon’s official Twitter account confirmed the score and wrote: ‘Great to see David Beckham grace our ground tonight ❤️’
According to Brentford’s match report, Romeo joined the action with the score all square, after J’Neil Bennett’s 55th minute penalty for the visitors was cancelled out by Hendon’s Niko Muir.
The match looked like it was going straight to penalties, the method used to settle any match tied at full-time. Then Lee Allinson’s hosts struck twice at the death.

Muir nabbed his second and Shaun Lucien secured Hendon’s third to map out their passage to the semis.
It is unclear who they will square up to in the next stage. A backlog of fixtures means Hendon will face one of Welling United, Charlton U21s or Barking in their bid to make the final.
Romeo Beckham is on loan at the west London side from Inter Miami II, and he secured his first goal for the club with an injury-time winner against Wealdstone last month.
It seems that David Beckham was also more comfortable watching Romeo play at Hendon, having previously escaped by climbing a fence after being mobbed by fans in Welling.
