David Morris, chairman of the Old Clee Club, said: "He will be very interesting for all football fans because he will have plenty of stories about his time with Nottingham Forest when he won the European Cup.
"He then went to play for Man United and also played for England and even Grimsby Town signed him.
"He was soon a favourite with Grimsby and he still follows town by looking out for their results."
David said that the event has already gained a lot of interest.
"I have spoken to ex Grimsby Town players who are interested and I think it will be a good night out," he said.
"We did a similar night back in October when Tommy Docherty came and it was a fantastic evening."
