Romeo Beckham spends time on the pitch with his Brentford B teammates ahead of their match

Romeo Beckham is snapped on the pitch with his Brentford B teammates ahead of their match against Aston Villa

He made a loan switch to Brentford’s B team from his dad’s MLS franchise Inter Miami earlier this month.

And Romeo Beckham was snapped on the pitch of Kingfield Stadium, Woking, on Friday as he prepared for his second game with the team.

The young forward player, 20, chatted with his new teammates as they circled the pitch before taking on Aston Villa’s under-21s team.

Romeo matched his pals in black Umbro jackets with the Brentford Football Team logo embroidered on.

While he kept warm in matching tracksuit bottoms and shorts on top, teamed with a pair of white trainers. 

The middle son of Victoria and David had a cross earring in each ear and was snapped chatting with his fellow teammates as they scoped out the pitch.

Romeo took on his first game as part of the team earlier this week, claiming 3-0 victory over Erith and Belvedere. 

His proud footballer dad David watched on from the stands as his son was neat and tidy on the pitch. He put in one sumptuous cross that just evaded everyone and sent a header bouncing along the bar – only to be flagged offside.

He whipped in a couple of late corners right in front of dad, too, which drew inevitable cheers and cries about just how to bend it.

They usually attract 160-odd fans in this corner of south east London. But for this tie, a record-breaking 553 paid £5 for their slice of history. 

And it comes after the team’s coach, Thomas Frank, insisted that Romeo has been signed ‘for a reason’ and not off the back of his famous dad.

He wants people to treat him as a player in his own right and explained: ‘Romeo is a very good player, of course he has a name that is pretty worldwide, and big.

Frank continued: ‘For Romeo he is himself, but he of course has a big name. You can’t compare (father and son).’

Frank then drew the comparison between Danish international Michael Laudrup and his son Andreas, who he coached, saying: ‘Maybe Laudrup is also a decent player (similar to David Beckham), I coached his son and it is important to take him as a player – not as a Laudrup but as himself.

The Brentford boss added: ‘He is here for a reason, because we think he is a good player, and we are pleased he could make the loan deal.

‘(We are) pleased to see him doing well, pleased to see the performance he had in the last game and when you have players, either permanent or on loan, it is for a reason.

Post-debut: The game is the second game for Romeo, who plays as a forward, since he joined the Brentford B team
