Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes is set to come out of retirement in order to play in a charity match for his son's local team.

Scholes announced his retirement just before the end of last season before featuring in his last game as a professional footballer at West Brom on the final day of the 2012/13 season.

The midfield maestro had previously retired in May 2011 only to reverse the decision and make a sensational comeback in January 2012.

But Scholes is now prepared for another U-turn and will be playing in a parents versus coaches clash to raise funds for his local junior football club, where his son, Aaron, plays for the under 14 side which will be held on July 26.

Scholes, who has won 11 league titles and two Champions League trophies under Sir Alex Ferguson, has played for only Manchester United in his entire career making him a unique one-club man.

One of the admired footballers of his generation, the 38-year-old has over 700 appearances for the Red Devils - the third highest number of appearances by any player for the club.
