Who Played Alongside Paul Scholes On His Manchester United Debut?

The birthday of the Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has rolled around and is surely cause for a throwback to the start of his storied time in a red shirt with a little lunchtime quiz.

A native of Salford, Scholes, who was just 19 at the time and had, of course, made his way up the ranks of the United Academy, made his first-team debut in the League Cup in September of 1994.

It was at a less salubrious location than some of those he would tog out later in his career that he would make his bow, at Port Vale’s Vale Park ground.

He was just one of a number of teenagers on the field for Ferguson’s men that day. What was that about winning trophies and kids?

Now, this came back before individual squad numbers came into play in the League Cup, and so Scholes took to the field with the number 10 on his back.

He put in a performance befitting of a ‘10’, scoring two goals, including a nifty dinked effort, in a 2-1 win.

He would go on to carve out a place for himself in the Red Devils’ side in the following season, the 1995/96 one, and a lengthy career ended in 2013 after 718 total appearances and 155 goals.

A one-club player who’ll be remembered fondly for his actions of the pitch by United fans. But who else lined up beside him on that day?

There’s 13 including subs, any true fans of the Reds going back to the 90s should be nailing 9 or 10 at least.
