Welcome to AVFC Official Cornwall Lions Supporters Club

About Us

In November 2020, Dave Wickes (Chair) and Dave James (Vice-Chair) gained permission from Aston Villa Football Club to create the official Cornwall Lions Supporters Club.

Cornwall Lions has assembled a committee to support the promotion and running of the club and has gained more than 100 local members.

The Cornwall Lions is the newest Official Supporters Club and is a welcoming, friendly and social group with a community focus.

Our membership numbers are growing across the county, and are keen to welcome new faces who are like-minded Villa supporters.


Chair – Dave Wickes

Dave is a life-long Villa fan, has a Season ticket and has spent several years following the Villa with Exeter Lions (Committee Member) before realising the demand across the County.

Dave wrote to Villa, gained official recognition for Cornwall Lions and is going from strength to strength.

During Dave’s extensive and lengthy travels to Villa (both home and away) he has meet and befriended a number of former Villa players who have supported the new Lions Club; Peter Withe, Tony Daley, Shaun Teale, Tony Morley and Jimmy Rimmer.
