Fight On!

Today's 2-1 loss to Chelsea was tough because of the missed handball call on Terry in the final minutes which could have helped us possibly level the score.  Despite the loss - this year's Villa squad is different.  They fought until the end - there was no sign of throwing in the towel.


Chicago 2013 North America Meet-Up

So much to say about this amazing event.  It was great to have been able to participate in this first one in Chicago.  Looking forward to seeing this become an annual event!

AVFC sent a message from the players to the supporters in America which we viewed for the first time right before kick-off!

Same moment...from two different angles.

The 2013-14 season is upon us!

Looking forward to the upcoming season.  Already have been making calls to Villa Park re: match tickets for members and busy preparing for the Chicago meet-up.  It has been great providing support to host Chicago Lions Club and their chairman, Simon Leach.  This is the start of beginning to see U.S. Lions Club branches connect with one another - I hope it continues.  Watching the recent Dublin Weekender from afar was inspiring.
