Footballer-turned-Hollywood movie star Vinnie Jones is to return to Elland Road for a special evening to talk about his life.

The former Leeds United hero will host ‘An Evening with Vinnie Jones’ at the club on March 22.

As part of the visit Vinnie has arranged with the club to appear on the pitch during the day’s home game to give back his 2nd Division Championship Medal to the club for display.

Vinnie played for the club during one of its most successful seasons, winning promotion back to the old first division in 1990.

A club spokesman said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Vinnie back. He remains a very popular former player. He was a cult hero to many.”

The full night of entertainment also includes a three-course meal, live jazz band, comedian and photo and autograph opportunities with the man himself.

Tickets start from £30 and a percentage of the profits will go to charity.
