Our A team the Canny Belters have been busy travelling England for some roller derby action these past two weekends! On March 29th we headed down to sunny Southend-on-Sea to take on Seaside Siren Roller Girls, where we took the win 196-143 – a bit of a wider gap than the last time we played in September 2013 when we took the win 153-151! Then on April 5th we had an afternoon drive down to Dewsbury to take on the one and only Hot Wheel Roller Derby – who proved to be as tough as ever and took the win 211-143. The Belters’ next game will be on home turf against Glasgow Roller Derby‘s Maiden Grrders – have you got your tickets yet?

First it was B team against B team – a rematch between our Whippin’ Hinnies and the Tender Hooligans with a predicted score of 150-180 with the Hooligans taking the win. The Hinnies, cheered on by one of our loudest audiences to date, turned the prediction on its head and took the win by an impressive 255-144! This means the Hinnies have flown up an amazing 7 places in the European Roller Derby Rankings and are now sitting at 55. Continue reading First bout of 2014!
