HOLLYWOOD film star Vinnie Jones is going back to his roots to host a fund-raising golf day for former club Wealdstone next month.

Jones, who played in the Stones' double-winning side of 1985 before moving on to fame and fortune, will be displaying his skills on the golf course on Thursday June 11.

The fund-raiser is split into two parts - golf at the Stockley Park course near Uxbridge and a club evening at Wealdstone's Grosvenor Vale ground from 7.30pm.

Jones became one of the best-known characters at the top level of English football, joining the Crazy Gang at Wimbledon and winning the FA Cup before moving on to Leeds, Sheffield United, Chelsea and QPR.

He was appointed assistant manager at Rangers, but quit the game after missing out on the top job in 1998 and went on to star in films including Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and The Mean Machine.

For more information about the golf day - which includes 18 holes and two meals for £65 per person - call Dennis Byatt on 07811 045 828 or email dennis.byatt@blueyonder.co.uk

Tickets for the evening, which will include a light buffet, are priced at £20 each. Contact Leo Morris on 07931 167 417 or Jezz Albert on 07903 805 861 for details.
