Beckham to attend Salford match on Saturday

Salford City’s new co-owner David Beckham is set to attend Saturday’s National League home clash against Dover.

It was announced last month that Beckham was following his Manchester United Class of 92 team-mates Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Phil Neville in taking a 10 per cent share in Salford.

The former England captain’s appointment as a director was formally approved by the Football Association on January 31, and it had been planned that he would be introduced to fans at the FA Trophy match against Maidstone two days later.

The visit was then postponed, with the fixture having been rearranged because of the weather.

Salford said in a post on their official Twitter feed on Friday: “We’re looking forward to welcoming a new face to The Peninsula Stadium tomorrow.

“New co-owner David Beckham will be in attendance at our game against Dover Athletic! #WelcomeBecks”

The Ammies, whose single largest shareholder is Singaporean businessman Peter Lim, are currently fifth in the National League.
