Keep your eyes glued to your telly box this weekend and set your Sky + and Tivo’s to record … The London Lions will be making special guest star appearances on not one, but two national television shows!
First up London Lions members Derek Kiernan, Thomas Fennell and South London Chairman, Cameron Hall all attended a recording of The Claire Balding Show at the BT studios in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Wednesday night. The show, an FA Cup Final special, features interviews with former Aston Villa goal keeper and FA Cup Finalist, David James and former England Manager and FA Cup winner Glenn Hoddle. 2003 Rugby World Cup winning heroes Jason Robinson and Ben Cohen, also joined the purple sofa to give their predications on who will win the Aviva Premiership title.
The show airs on BBC2 at 10pm on Friday night. You can also catch up on iplayer here.
On Saturday morning, Ed Trickett, Mike Symmonds, Cameron Hall and John O’Brien will all be waking up early to head over to the Sky Sports Studios for a live appearance on Soccer AM, representing the claret and blue faithful ahead of our biggest game in 15 years.
The lads will be donning their full kit to sit in the famous Luther Blissett stand. As “Fans of the week” we’ll be looking to raise the roof of the Soccer AM studios over and above the Aresnal contingent. We’ll be taking some retro Villa shirts for the way and trying our hand at penalties.
Tune in to Sky Sports at 10:00am to watch the lads in action before you make your way to Wembley!
