Sheffield City Hall will play host to the pair on June 15 – three decades on from an infamous photograph where hard man Jones was seen squeezing in a sensitive area during a game between Wimbledon and Newcastle United.

The incident in October 1987 made worldwide headlines and is one of football’s most iconic photos.
