Marks and Spencer hopes to win over the youth squad with the launch of David Beckham’s second boyswear collection for the retailer.

The footballing hero’s new collection is launched this weekend and includes a basic range of sweatshirts and T-shirts as well as jeans, track pants and combat trousers.

Sporty T-shirts featuring Beckham’s initials and sweatshirts emblazoned with the England captain’s name will also be included together with a raft of accessories such as wristbands, visors and belts - all targeted at brand-conscious children.

A few weeks ago the Beckham’s wife Victoria announced that she would also be putting her name to a collection for the chain with a range of lingerie.
