ABOUT the lions

Leamington Lions was founded in 1998 by Nick Buckle, a local teacher. Whilst training in Leamington, he discovered that girls were actually interested in playing football but that there were few opportunities in the Leamington & Warwick area.

Nick decided to start a team, word spread and, before long, Leamington Lions was born.
