When did you first get involved with Roller Derby?
What’s your Derby story?
I was in the middle of a mid life crisis when I bought some roller skates from eBay. Facebook then started sending me notifications of games in the area. On a boring old Saturday in May I decided to go to a game. I walked into the Walker Dome in Newcastle to be surrounded by people with multi coloured hair, tattoos, piercings and I knew immediately I had found my people. After watching the game I was absolutely in awe and determined to find a league I could join. I wouldn’t take no for an answer, turned up to sessions and went through fresh meat on my own. I passed min skills by the September 2015 and was playing my first rookie bout in the October 2015
What’s in your kit bag?
My kit from head to toe- S-one helmet, Sisu mouth guard, 187 Pro elbows and wrists, TSG knee pads.
I finally upgraded my skates during lockdown to a set of BEAUTIFUL custom made Motas with Rolline Killer Plates, Rolline Gumball Toestops and my trusty Radar Halo 95 wheels.
If you could describe DRD in four words what would they be?
Committed, Competitive, Courageous, Inclusive
Favourite Action shot:
This is one of my favourites because – I’m not suck in a wall, I’m looking ahead, and I look calm and like I mean business 😀 Most of the time I prefer to pull faces and play up to the camera a little, but this is a rare moment when I’m actually concentrating!
