On 16th October (next Saturday!) Team Scotland will face The Northern Allstars – the best of Northern England’s skaters. Doors open at 1:30pm in the Meadowbank Sports Centre in Edinburgh, with tickets costing £6 – under 14s get free entry.
This will be another exciting bout as we watch the country’s finest roller girls warm up for the Blood & Thunder World Cup later this year. In their last World Cup warm-up bout, Team Scotland met with a formidable Team Steve: the ‘best of the rest’ of Scotland’s roller derby girls. Team Scotland claimed victory, but Steve definitely gave them a run for their money!
Team Scotland have quite a following now and are getting huge support from their fans and other leagues to not just promote roller derby, but also to help them raise vital funds to get them to Toronto. Team Scotland are on Facebook, so why not head on over and see what else they’re up to?
To keep up with all things roller derby in Scotland, Sandy and his team of writers have set up a blog to keep you updated with bouts and events held by Scottish leagues. It’s a great resource and one that I’d thoroughly recommend that you check out. They’re on Facebook too, y’know!
