After months of trials and scrimmages in a grueling series of try-outs, the first-ever Team Scotland has announced their final roster of 20 players – and a whopping 9 of them are from Auld Reekie, with one more on the reserve list.
These elite skaters will compete this December in the world’s first Roller Derby World Cup in Toronto, Canada, alongside teams from 12 other nations including England, Ireland and the USA. It’s a huge moment in international roller derby, and with a line-up like this one Scotland is bound to leave a mark – even if that mark is black and blue.
Hearty ARRG congrats to Alma Geddon, Blazin Phoenix, Bronx Betty, Ciderella, Crazylegs, Danger Mouth, Fight Cub, Minnie Riot, Mo B Quick, and VeloSidy (reserve)!
Extra special congrats to Juicy Lucy, veteran ARRG skater who has made the roster for Team England, and to Moxie Emerald, ARRGie at heart, who has made Team Scotland from all the way in Australia! See you in Toronto, Lucy….
