Villa Park in May and Texas in July

Sorry for the lack of new material here.  Back in May, the North American Lions roared into B6 for the final matches of the 2013-14 season (Hull, City, and Spurs).  A great trip that included playing in the annual chairman's game and enjoying the Lions Club Awards Night.

In July, Aston Villa headed to the Lone Star State to play two pre-season friendlies with MLS teams (FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo).  There was an amazing turnout by the Villa faithful from all parts of the U.S. and from around the globe.  Funds were also raised for Acorns, Villa's charity partner.  It was an amazing trip - I am hoping that Villa will be visiting the U.S. again sooner rather than later!
