Scholes, who retired at the end of the 2012-13 campaign, was taking part in a warm-up exercise ahead of Unicef’s ‘Match for Children’ when he delighted fans by nutmegging his fellow former England international. (Scroll down this page to see the video).
One supporter managed to record the incident using his mobile phone and the laughs from the stands suggest that moment alone may have been worth the entry fee.

Terry is something of a pantomime villain at Old Trafford, so the fact it was him who was nutmegged by Scholes made it hilarious for the Manchester United supporters inside the ground.
Whenever United and Chelsea have met since the start of the 2008-09 campaign, after the Red Devils beat the Blues on penalties to win the Champions League final in Moscow, Terry has regularly been serenaded by a rendition of “Viva John Terry”.
Terry, of course, missed the spot-kick that would have seen Chelsea crowned European champions for the first time in their history.
Fortunately for the centre-back, Chelsea were able to lift the trophy in Munich four years later - although Terry was suspended for the final against Bayern Munich after receiving a red card in the semis against Barcelona.
GB & Ireland beat Rest of the World
Terry was on the winning side, along with Scholes, during Saturday’s charity match.
Scholes scored a trademark header from a David Beckham cross, while Dwight Yorke and Michael Owen also found the back of the net, as Great Britain and Ireland recorded a 3-1 win over the Rest of the World.
