This Saturday our A team are heading to the sunny shores of Brighton to bout in what’s expected to be an explosive game.
Neither team have met on track before, after narrowly missing out on a match up at the UKRDA tournament earlier this year both teams have been looking forward to battling it out. Central City are fresh from a win against both Paris’ A and B team and are pushing full steam ahead this season with a packed bouting schedule including several WFTDA sanctioned games. Brighton have maintained a high profile on the derby scene over the last 2 years taking some high profile victories and are keen to maintain their place as one of the top twenty teams in Europe. Both teams are excited to be rolling against each other and I caught up with CCR’s Boots Manuva and Brighton’s Racey Slamhard for their thoughts on the upcoming game.
CCR’s Boots Manuva: “We are really looking forward to this weekend and have been since the Ally Pally Tourney earlier this year, where we missed out on the chance to meet Brighton on track. We have had some great games so far this season (just coming from a win against Paris Rollergirls last weekend) so momentum and morale are good in camp CCR. I don’t like to pay attention to the stats/rankings/numberwang too much but various systems seem to have us and Brighton pretty close together so it should be a cracking game for both players and roller derby fans!”
Brighton’s Captain Racey Slamhard: “We are so excited for this game! It’s been long anticipated and it’s going to be neck and neck the whole way – a real nail biter!”
