Becks flies in for sur­prise Welsh visit

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

DAVID BECK­HAM stunned a small vil­lage in Mid Wales on Fri­day night, after land­ing his pri­vate chop­per on a lo­cal foot­ball pitch.

The for­mer Manch­ester United and Real Madrid star is thought to have char­tered a pri­vate he­li­copter and landed on the pitch at Llan­rhaeadr FC. The Powys foot­ball club joked on Twit­ter: “Terms all agreed. Con- tract signed. Only the small is­sue of in­ter­na­tional clear­ance.”

But the mid­fielder isn’t mak­ing a shock move to the club – he is thought to be in the area to shoot an ad­vert, ac­cord­ing to the Daily Post.

It’s not known what the ad­vert was for, but the 42-year-old man­aged to take some time to en­joy the Welsh coun­try­side.

He shared a video on his In­sta­gram, which has 40 mil­lion fol­low­ers, of the Pistyll Rhaeadr wa­ter­falls which he cap­tioned “Ridicu­lously beau­ti­ful”.

Some lo­cals shared their de­light at spot­ting the star, while oth­ers took to Twit­ter to share their dis­be­lief that they missed him.

Twit­ter user @_Wil­liams93 said: “The one Fri­day night I don’t go home and David Beck­ham ca­su­ally lands his he­li­copter on the lo­cal foot­ball field...Ab­so­lutely gut­ted!”

An­other with the han­dle @ Vaugh­an­er_ said: “The one night I’m not in Llan­rhaeadr I miss David Beck­ham... most dis­ap­point­ing night of my life.”
