Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes will be in the dugout when Oldham Athletic visit the Abbey next month. The 44-year-old has long been linked with the Latics job, and agreed a one-and-a-half year deal on Monday morning. His coaching experience has been limited to a stint at Manchester United following his retirement in 2011. He reversed his decision to retire in January 2012 and returned to playing. Since his second retirement, he has worked as a pundit with ITV and BT Sport. Scholes will be assisted by Mick Priest and will take charge of his first match against Yeovil Town tomorrow (Tuesday, February 12) at Boundary Park. The midfielder was, of course, in the same Manchester United youth team as Cambridge United’s current goalkeeper coach Kevin Pilkington. He also faced Colin Calderwood during his playing days. Speaking of the appointment, Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam said: “Paul has won everything there is to win in football. Cambridge United will play Oldham Athletic on Saturday, March 9.
