THE son of Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp scored his first goal for non-league side Bromley last night.
And incredibly, he slotted past the son of another former Premier League star.
Mitchel Bergkamp is following in his father's footballing footsteps having signed for Bromley as a free agent in January.
The forward scored his first Bromley goal when he netted in a 2-1 defeat to Woking.
The goal came in the 25th minute of his first start and sixth appearance for the National League side.
And it came after he side-footed home following a mistake from Woking goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen – son of former Bolton hero Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Astonishingly, their fathers came up against each other during their playing careers, with Dennis even slotting past Jussi in the Premier League in 2001.
Despite Mitchel Bergkamp scoring his first Bromley goal since joining in January the forward was subbed at half time.
Manager Andy Woodman explained he made the decision because he "kept dropping into the middle of the park".
Woodman said: "I felt sorry for Mitch, I took him off at half-time as I was playing him in a position which wasn't right for him."

He added: "I couldn't get him in the game. I wanted him to go up top and he kept dropping into the middle of the park. We tried to create something for Mitch in there and he did alright but we were putting no pressure on their front men, so I had to change that a little bit.
"But credit to Mitch, he understands his place in the team and he's got his first goal for Bromley so we're immensely chuffed."
Mitch was released after his contract expired with Watford's Under 23 side having joined them from Dutch side Almere's Under 21 team in 2020.
He also briefly had a trial at Arsenal but the Gunners didn't take him on.
Bromley sit eighth in the National League and are next in action away at Eastleigh on Saturday.
