Scholes back at Boundary Park

Last updated : 26 January 2017 By The Chairman

Paul Scholes has been taking training sessions with Oldham’s youth team as part of his training to achieve his UEFA ‘A’ licence and a possible future career in management. Scholes has been a life-long Latics fan and rumours over the years have linked him several with a playing/coaching career at the club. The 42–year-old was also acting as an ambassador for the club to help secure some much-needed investment when the team entertained Peterborough United on Tuesday night. Potential backers, big Manchester United fans, from China were at the game and they also watched their hero Scholes training with the youths.

An observer noted, “Scholesy has been taking sessions about once a month. He’s really, really impressive. He clearly has still got it and he appears to have the makings of a great coach. He certainly made an impression yesterday with the visitors. We kept it quiet from the lads and they were delighted to see him, absolutely buzzing. He put on a great session and then got involved himself at the end.”
