Our Team Scotland skaters hit the national press today so I felt it was about time that I write a wee piece about them!
Team Scotland will be joining teams from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Sweden, and USA to battle it out for the number 1 slot in the Blood & Thunder World Cup! The tournament is being held in Toronto from 1st – 4th December, but for those of us who can’t make it over, Derby News Network are showing live bout casts!
Our fantastic team is made up of skaters from most of our Scottish leagues: Auld Reekie Roller Girls, Glasgow Roller Girls, Granite City Roller Girls, and with substitutes from Dundee Roller Girls. The girls went through a grueling selection process to come out on top as our finest roller derby exports. After skating against some of Team Scotland at scrims in Dundee, I can definitely say that we have a winning team representing us in the World Cup!
I hope you join me in wishing our girls the very best of luck!
