The West London Lions (Formerly Kingston Lions) is run by Simon King


Simon says, "It took a while for my Dad to agree to let me go to watch Villa in the 80's, the prospect of sending me off to Villa with football violence at a high did not appeal. So in his wisdom he took me to watch Bromsgrove Rovers in an FA cup match against Newport County, where he wrongly thought there would be no trouble. It was carnage and my fate was sealed, I was allowed to go.


Up and down the country as a 16 year old on a coach from West Heath was an eye opener to say the least, despite the atmosphere changing nothing beats an away game with several thousand Villa fans (Everton away 89-90) I've also been on couple of European tours to Madrid and Prague which were amazing.  


Originally from Rubery in Birmingham I now live in Kingston Upon Thames and in 2009 started the Kingston Lions, at our peak we've boasted over 60 members and can usually muster about 10 at all London Games and I also organise other away matches around the country. Having now joined up with the 3 other London Chairman and with coach trips to Villa Park up and running the word is spreading that the once famous London Lions is back."
