This weekend sees Central City Rollergirls travel to Manchester, with the Centrinnians taking on the Rainy City Roller Girls.
CCR and RCRG have met on the track twice previously. Both of these bouts saw nail bitingly narrow victories giving the head to head score of one a piece.
In February 2010 RCRG beat CCR 115-104 in Birmingham, while November 2010 saw CCR return the favour by beating RCRG in Manchester. A 5-0 final jam saw CCR overturn a 4 point deficit and edge home by one point with the bout finishing 85 – 84.
Saturday 11th February will be the first time CCR visit RCRG in their new warehouse home ‘The Thunderdome’ and you can be sure both teams will be going all out to make it 2-1 in their favour.
Tickets are available on-line for the bargain price of £7 (plus charges). If you can’t make the trip up the M6 this Saturday you can follow all the action with our updates from @The_CCR on twitter.
