Beckham Expresses Sadness At Greyhound Track Closure
The Los Angeles Galaxy star was employed as a youth at Walthamstow Greyhound Racing Stadium, near his birthplace of Leytonstone, but the venue is
due to close after failing to make enough profit to cover costs.
The final race took place at the stadium on Friday (15Aug08) - and Beckham is one of many mourning the loss of the famed racing grounds.
He says, "I always remember my time working at Walthamstow dogs. It was my first job and I was so happy to be getting a wage for the first time.
It's a real shame."
