ENGLAND might have been kicked out of the World Cup but one of the most famous footballers ever is coming to Yate this weekend, well, almost.

Yate Shopping Centre is welcoming David Beckham professional lookalike this Saturday, June 28 (12-3pm) in the central square.

He will be demonstrating both his well rehearsed act and teaching the crowd a few of the megastar’s tricks.

Centre marketing manager Tracy King said: “Unfortunately, David was a bit busy so we got a stand-in to come and entertain the crowds.

“With the World Cup going on what better time is there to learn some of the famous star’s tricks of the trade?”

She added: “It’s just a shame that England is no longer in the competition but future stars will have their chance to show the crowd how good they are.

“You never know it could be their opportunity to learn a few tricks to impress Roy Hodgson for Qatar 2022.”
