Paul Scholes has still got it. The 39-year-old turned out for Chadderton Park Legends in a charity match against a Greater Manchester Police XI on Friday night.

As per Manchester Evening News, Scholes was also joined by his 14-year-old son Arron, as Chadderton pulled off a 5-3 win.

Highlights show the former Manchester United and England midfielder Scholes flicking trademark passes around and also scoring with a slick finish after going around the goalkeeper.

Said Scholes, as per M.E.N.:

It’s hard work, it’s okay when you’ve been training. But it was a good game for a great cause. It’s always good to be able to do something for the local community. We played some good stuff. We didn’t go easy on them and they didn’t on us.

There were some nice tackles flying in which I always like to see. Arron played well, he sorted us out a few times.

The match was arranged to raise funds for "the Christie and orphanages in Kenya and Uganda."

It's not the first time Scholes has played for Chadderton. You'll all remember this goal.

Too old for another United comeback?
