David Beckham has joined his fellow former Manchester United team-mates in taking up a stake in Salford City as the Class of 92 secured a majority sharehoulding in the National League side.

Beckham will take up a 10 percent stake in the club to mean that the Class of 92 group including Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes now own 60 percent of the club, with Peter Lim owning the other 40.

“It’s a proud moment for me to join Peter Lim and the Class of 92 lads as an owner of Salford City. It’s a really special club and a special group of people,” said Beckham.

“My early in Manchester were all spent in Salford. I grew up there in many ways so to be able to finally join the lads and the club today is a great feeling.

“Salford City has achieved so much success in a short space of time, the fans are incredible and I’m really excited to be spending more time in Salford again.”

The Class of 92 said they'd always wanted Beckham to be part of the ownership group, and now the man who will be creating a new MLS team in Miami will also have a piece of Salford as they look to rise up the leagues.

"From the very beginning we wanted David to be involved and be with us on this incredible journey however circumstances and commitments didn't allow that," read a Class of 92 statement.

"Now the time is right and is another exciting time in Salford City's history. It is important to emphasise that nothing will change in the day to day operations of the club but to have us all together was always the vision.

"We grew up in Salford, carved our careers here and that's why we are doing what we are doing at Salford City. We have grown to love this club and the fan and we would like to welcome David to the club and to becoming part of the Salford City family."
