David Beckham Turns Up To Watch Salford City And Spends 30 Minutes Taking Selfies
David Beckham decided to throw on his fancy clobber on this sunny Saturday afternoon to watch Salford against Dover and unsurprisingly, his appearance sparked pandemonium at the Peninsula.
Last month the former Manchester United midfielder became the latest player to buy a stake in the non league side, joining former teammates Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt in becoming a shareholder.
If you didn't already know, The Class Of 92' bought a majority stake in Salford back in 2014.
The five giants of the game have helped lead the club to the verge of League Two, with some big names like Adam Rooney, Danny Lloyd and Rory Gaffney joining the club.

And with Golden Balls on board, who knows what'll happen in the coming years. All we know he's bringing in one hell of a crowd.
Here's just some of the reaction from his appearance in Salford.
What a bloke.

The likes of Butt and Neville were joined by billionaire Peter Lim, who also owns Valencia in La Liga, and now they have been joined by former teammate David Beckham, who has bought a 10% stake.
Beckham's 10% comes from Lim's shares and reduces him to 40%.
He continues to hold the single largest amount of shares but the Class of 92 now own 60%.
Mr Beckham is in the building! Posed for as many photos as he could for a good half an hour as he arrived for his first Salford City game. #beckham #football #salford #Classof92 @SalfordCityFC pic.twitter.com/LLroXSOvow
