Everton icon Tony Hibbert made a comeback for unbeaten Skelmerdsale amateur team Hares - who promptly lost their unbeaten record in his first appearance!
Hibbert, a stalwart of 328 games for the Blues, was drafted in by the South Lancashire League side after a nine-match winning sequence which included a staggering 21-0 victory.
But with Hibbert included Hares lost 1-0 to rivals Clay Brow.
Hibbo, who famously never scored a competitive goal throughout his long career, has found grass roots football just as frustrating.
The Huyton-born defender turned out for St Aloysius FC alongside his dad Paul last year, and former Tranmere Rovers players Kenny Irons and Ged Brannan in a Liverpool County FA Veterans鈥?Cup game.
That match went to a shootout and the man famous for never scoring a goal, stepped up and smashed his effort against the crossbar.
He has since played three more games for Hares - and is still waiting to end his goal drought.
Renowned throughout his career as a no-nonsense, unflashy footballer who loved the game, Hibbert's willingness to muck in with the amateurs is endearing.
He won't be building a reputation as a lucky charm any time soon, though.
