Former England and Manchester United midfielder David Beckham has bought a stake in Salford City, the National League club have announced.
The 43-year-old has followed in the footsteps of former United team-mates Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt and secured a 10 per cent stake in the club.
With the ‘Class of 92’ major shareholders now at 60 per cent, Peter Lim remains the largest shareholder.
Beckham said: “It’s a proud moment to join Peter Lim and the Class of 92 lads as owner. It’s a really special club and a special group of people.”
Salford are currently third in the National League – the fifth tier of English football – just a point behind the leaders, as they look for promotion to the Football League.
