The St Andrew’s Prep under-13 team bumped into footballing royalty as they competed at the National Prep School sixes tournament last weekend.

Former England skipper David Beckham was on the sidelines watching his son Romeo compete at the six-a-side football tournament held at Rokeby School in Kingston upon Thames.

Beckham happily posed for pictures with the St Andrews lads and gave the team a few words words of encouragement.

Chris Pinch, joint director of sport at St Andrew’s said, “It was great for the lads to meet one of their heroes. It took everyone by surprise to see him there. One of our lads spotted him and shuffled over towards him and asked him for a picture. Luckily he happily obliged.”
