Back in 2017, Scholes took charge of training Oldham's youngsters "about once a month".
His sessions are said to have went down extremely well with the academy side, who were no doubt ecstatic to be learning from arguably the most technically gifted players in Premier League history.
Brendy Galakin, a youth player, was certainly delighted about having the opportunity to be trained by such a decorated player.
