Nottingham Supporters Club
« on: March 16, 2019, 09:12:48 AM »
Mods feel free to move this as I'm fairly new to the site!

I'm based near Nottingham CIty Centre and have been looking for a while for to seeing if we can start a supporters club up here. Due to the distance, you would have thought there would be quite a few Notts Villains but I haven't met too many.

Could look to set something up in terms of sharing travel to home and away games and also doing anything else Villa related!

Hope anyone can assist or is interested!

Worth getting in contact with Lee Preece at Villa, who looks after the Lions Club side of things. Doesn't look like there's a Nottingham Lions at the moment you can apply to start one on the official site here.

firstname.lastname@avfc.co.uk is the email structure which gets you through to him (I won't post his actual address to limit any spam issues).

I went to the Forest game in the week with a mate who lives about fives minutes from the ground.  I'll send him a link to this post.

There is an East Midlands Lions on the list. It doesn't say where they are based though.

I'll do the same. A lot of great Saturday nights spent at Rock City after a game at Villa Park with loads of Nottingham based Villa mates.

At the 2012 pre season friendly I was with 6 Villa mates from Nottingham.

As a city, I really like Nottingham. The Pit and the Pendulum being a memorable haunt.

Lots of students in Nottingham so there's almost certainly plenty of Villa support there.

Me too and the Rescue rooms.

I went to the game with my brother in law, who lives in West Bridgford.
