18 Big Tall Jock

Jock-18What’s the inspiration behind your derby name?
I was once called the ‘Big Tall Jock’ by an opposition team (Preston Roller Girls, I think) and I thought it was brilliant so I adopted it!

What’s the inspiration behind your number?
It’s the day I was born (18th Feb).

What was your proudest roller derby moment?
There are loads of moments that I’m proud of – reaching the final of SKOD 2015 with the Belters, how the club has progressed within the British Championships – but the one that stands out the most is making the 2016 Team Scotland training squad.

Three words to describe you?
Big. Tall. Jock.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to get involved with their local team?
Take the plunge and do it. There are so many roles you can get involved with and it’s a great encouraging community to be part of.

What other sports / training do you do when you’re not on eight wheels?
Cycling, running, 5-aside football (badly!), strength training – anything active really!
