End Of Season Villa Lions Supporter Club Awards

The end of season Lions awards were slightly early this year, held over the Easter Weekend, here are the winners as discussed by Alan Perrins, Lions Club supremo said:

The Lions Clubs grew again this season in strength with 160 Branches worldwide.

This season was the closest its ever been especially in the UK category where Bromsgrove performed outstanding this season, to come from a Branch in turmoil not long ago and under the stewardship of Phil Gardner and Duncan Kemp to a VERY close 2nd in a short space of time.

Sutton Coldfield were the outright winners just shading Bromsgrove, has no one bought more tickets,or season tickets or traveled away more than them.Sutton win 50 tickets to a home game next season for their Branch and a framed signed first team shirt.

Overseas was won easily by Tom Gillis Belgium Lions has nobody came anywhere near them this season from Overseas. Tom regular visitor to Villa Park with their 70 seater coach who come over for the weekend and can always be seen clearing the club shop of merchandise!Belgium win 50 Tickets to a home game next season and a framed signed first team shirt.

Clubman was Mark Wyatt from Gwent who made an exceptional effort this season to bring families to Villa Park from Wales, attended all Chairmans meetings, activities and contributed more than any other fellow Chairman. Mark wins a father and son season ticket, a signed football in a presentation case and the prestigious George Ramsay Bowl.

Most improved Branch was Walsall who came on leaps and bounds this season, and the camaraderie amongst their members is clear for all to see. Walsall win 25 tickets to a home game next season and a signed pair of Shay Givens boots in a presentation case.

Acorns 1874 winners went to Jonathan Fears Vital Villa who raised 2100.00 for Acorns our official Charity partner. They win a framed signed shirt.

Lions Club 5 a side Charity Shield was retained by Great Barr for the second season running by beating Cannock 3-2 in the final. They take the shield, and every player received a medal in Lions Club presentation box, winner and runners up.

Outstanding Contribution was awarded to Bob Moore from Somerset who starts a 380 mile round trip to home games in the early hours of the morning, driving a bus to Villa Park every game picking up passengers all through Somerset and returning them safely, culminating in a 12-15 hour day minimum. Add to that doing it all again for the away games Bobs efforts have not gone unnoticed and received a signed football with all the first team signatures.

We would like to thank every Lions Club Chairman, and their members for their support this season from home and abroad. You are all winners in my book - and any one of your Branches can win the categories above by sheer hard work and determination.

Heres to more of the same next season....
