David Beckham birthday treat for Welwyn Garden City boy

YOUNG Curtis Whitelegg got more of a birthday surprise than he bargained for.

As the 10-year-old WGC lad and his brother ended up having their picture taken with England soccer legend David Beckham.

Dad Chris, a golf pro, said: “We took Curtis on a 10th birthday treat to Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre where he saw Santa and then went on the short slope with his brother Flynn on the rubber ringos.

“To our suprise David Beckham was right next to us taking pictures of his boys on the same ringos.
