Former Sunderland star Julio Arca is playing pub football for Willow Pond FC!
Arca - still only 33 and forced to retire earlier this year because of a toe injury - pays his £3.50 subs like the rest of his teammates.
He told the Daily Mail: "I know one of the lads, Andy. When I was still playing he always said to me, 'You'll have to play for us one day'.
"Then we came here for a drink about five weeks ago and he asked me again. I wasn't playing so thought 'Okay, why not?'. He got me to sign the forms that day!
"It was only when I started playing again with these lads that I realised how much I was missing it.
"You have to adapt and I can't expect them to run all over. The first few weeks I was looking for a pass and it wasn't there. I now know what they can and can't do. But I've scored a couple of goals, a free-kick on my debut, and it's great when you win."
