Former Manchester United and Newcastle midfielder Nicky Butt scored on his debut for Hong Kong club South China in a trial game on Tuesday.

The ex-England international found the back of the net via a free-kick during the second half to help his side draw level in their friendly against TSW Pegasus, but proceeded to hit the woodwork from the penalty spot six minutes later.

Butt’s penalty slip-up did not matter, though, as South China scored in injury time to win the encounter 2-1.

“I enjoyed the goal. It was a nice goal. If I missed, maybe Mr Lo would kill me,” Butt said, referring to South China chairman Steven Lo.

The 35-year-old came out of retirement to sign with South China on a short-term contract, although he did not rule out committing to a longer deal with the club.

“I enjoyed my time. There’s a lot of things we need to discuss. A lot of things are positive. Hopefully the fans enjoyed seeing me play. Everything’s good,” Butt said.

Butt was welcomed to the club by 8000 of the South China faithful on Monday, who cheered his every move in the trial game.
