During the Birmingham Lions preparation week for their first game vs the Imperial Immortals they were joined by New York Times Reporter Ken Belson.  Ken came over to the UK to write a variety of articles on the impact the NFL was having in the UK.  After watching the Bills vs Jaguars thriller at Wembley, Ken travelled to Birmingham to take in the sights and witness the amazing UofB campus.  During his stay he met with a variety of coaches and players from all of the Lions programmes.  The result  is the below linked article featured in the New York Times on Sunday 1st November 2015.

The Birmingham Lions would like to Thank Ken for his extremely kind remarks in the article and we wish his home town New York Mets the very best in the World Series.
