Our first bout of 2014, against Rainy City Roller Girls and sponsored by Maxïmo Park, was one of our most exciting events to date and a great start to the year. 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.

Next up the Canny Belters were taking on the mighty Rainy City travel team – and kept the score close to its prediction of 150-180 by battling to the very end result of a 152-191 win for the visitors. After such a great performance against one of the biggest names in UK roller derby the Canny Belters have kept a hold of their highest European ranking spot, 18.
