When Wilko signed former hod-carrier Vinnie Jones at the start of
the 1989-90 season, it sent out a message to the world: "We're going
for promotion and it's going to be a kick, elbow and bite
drive. Nothing will stand in our way." And such it was: Vinnie's
fearsome reputation from Wimbledon may have caused a few sleepless
nights for Division 2 attackers, but in that season he controlled his
aggression to perfection, only picking up a couple of bookings as he
stood firm in the centre of midfield. With promotion secured and Gary
McAllister signed, it was clear that there would only be limited
opportunities for Vinnie in the first team, so he was sold at a profit
to Sheffield United and has always had a great reception whenever he
returns to Elland Road. He finally retired from the game to
concentrate on his acting career after the success of his appearance
in "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", and his main sporting
interest these days seems to be greyhounds, with his dogs making the
final of the Greyhound Derby in 2000 and 2001.
