We caught up with Kat Von Tease to find out some more about the Tender Hooligans:
Tell us about your team:
We have had a steady year, playing increasingly more challenging opponents as we grow together as a team. Most recently we have played Auld Reekies b team.
We are the “feeder” team into the travel team which means that we are lucky enough to have several of our members train at a higher level and bring that back to the team, including some training with ex Gotham superstar Mick Swagger.
On game day you will usually find me…
Listening to cheesy music whilst the rest of the team listen to metal!
Favorite training slogan/montage/motivational speech?
Any/all of the Rocky movies.
Who are you looking forward to matching up against today?
Tiger bay to get a measure of them pre sur5al and Batter C because who doesn’t want to play them!
If you could have any celebrity/fictional character on your team, who would it be and why?
She Ra because not only is she powerful and fast but in that outfit I think she would distract the opposition!
What’s next for you?
Sur5al in November and a bit of a Christmas break 🙂
31st October – 1st of November, Doug Ellis Sports Centre, 150 Wellhead Lane, Birmingham
