WHO AM I?
In this story, I will be Vincent Jones, a former Leeds and Wimbledon defender known for his crunching tackles against opponents. I have been a Leeds United supporter for many years, and have always seen "Vinnie" as a club legend.
Vincent Jones was born on January 5, 1965 in Watford, a town located in the County of Hertfordshire. At the age of 24, Howard Wilkinson signed Vinnie Jones from Wimbledon, however at the time Leeds were in the Second Division. He was a solid defender throughout the whole season, and was probably one of the main reasons Leeds won promotion to the First Division that season.
He was sold to Sheffield United in the Summer of 1990 as he lost his first-team place to youngsters David Batty and Gary Speed. He is seen as a legend to Leeds United despite the sale, and many Leeds supporters were disappointed with the decision to sell him. He regularly visits Elland Road, the stadium of Leeds United. Vincent became a very solid defender, and also enjoyed later spells at Chelsea, Wimbledon, and Queens Park Rangers before his retirement at the end of the 1998-1999 season.
