SHORTWOOD UNITED striker Luke Soule treated his girlfriend to a Valentine’s Day never to forget.

Instead of a romantic dinner, Soule took his partner Becki Murray to watch Gloucester play Exeter Chiefs at Kingsholm last night and to their amazement they spotted former Manchester United and England legend Paul Scholes in the crowd.

Soule revealed: “We just decided to have an evening at the rugby due to it being such a big game, Valentine’s Day gets a bit non-existent once you have kids.”

And it got even better for Soule with his girlfriend a huge Manchester United fan.

Soule revealed: “ I noticed him walk in just after the game started and couldn’t believe it was him, and everybody started to realise it was him and then he got bombarded with photos at half-time.

“ I just asked if we could have a photo and he was more than happy to do so, even if he had to put his pint down. I’m not a United fan, but my girlfriend is, so she was just as excited to get a photo with him."
