TIGER BAY BRAWLERS

PLAYING DERBY SINCE

APRIL 2010

SIGNATURE MOVE

ORDERING PEOPLE AROUND!  MY TEAM OFTEN JOKE ABOUT MY UPFRONT AND SHALL WE SAY… URGENT, COMMUNICATION ON TRACK. YOU GOTTA DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO RIGHT?

 BEST DERBY ACHIEVEMENT

THIS QUESTION IS ALWAYS A TOUGH ONE… SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN JUST THE LAST YEAR ALONE.  IT’S QUITE THE WHIRL WIND!  OUR WIN OVER BRAWL SAINTS (London Rollergirls' B-Team) IS A PRETTY MOMENTOUS ACHIEVEMENT, AND NOT JUST BECAUSE WE WON, BUT BECAUSE OF HOW OUR TEAM WORKED TOGETHER THAT DAY. EVERYTHING SEEMED TO CLICK PERFECTLY INTO PLACE, BOTH ON TRACK AND ON OUR BENCH – IT WAS MAGICAL - WHAT DERBY DREAMS ARE MADE OF!

DERBY HEROES AND WHY

I CAN OFTEN BE FOUND DERBY SWOONING OVER SOMEONE OR ANOTHER, AND WHO THAT IS OFTEN SEEMS TO TIE IN WITH MY CURRENT PERSONAL GOALS.  AGGRESSION IS A FOCUS FOR ME RIGHT NOW (LEGALLY OF COURSE) SO SINCE ANARCHY 3 IT’S MAINLY WINDY SKATERS – SARGENTINA, GO-GO, BORK BORK BORK – THEY’RE SO BADASS!

MY TRUE LOVES AND HEROES THOUGH WILL ALWAYS BE MY WONDERFUL TEAM MATES AT TIGER BAY.  THEY CONSTANTLY BLOW MY MIND WITH THEIR EFFORT, DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT TO THE LEAGUE.

WHAT DOES A REGULAR WEEK LOOK LIKE FOR YOU (TRAINING/WORK/COMMITTEE INVOLVEMENTS)?

BUSY!  I BALANCE MY ‘REGULAR’ 9-5 ALONGSIDE COACHING AND SKATING AT LEAST 3 TIMES A WEEK AND AS MUCH OFF SKATE FITNESS AS I CAN FIT IN (CYCLING/STRENGTH) 
OFF SKATE – I’M PART OF THE COACHING TEAM AND I RECEIVE AND SEND ABOUT A MILLION EMAILS A DAY.  I ALSO BOOK OUR A TEAM GAMES AND LIAISE WITH POTENTIAL/FUTURE OPPONENTS WHILE ALSO GUIDING OUR LEAGUE THROUGH THE WFTDA AP PROGRAMME AS OUR WFTDA REP.  I ALSO CAPTAIN OUR A TEAM SO THERE’S A LOT OF PREP AND ADMIN TYPE WORK THAT GOES INTO THAT INCLUDING FOOTAGE WATCHING HOMEWORK!  I WATCH TONS OF FOOTAGE.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE DERBY IN 4 WORDS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

A REAL GOOD TIME.

IF YOU HAD ANY ADVICE FOR THE FRESHIE KID BLOCK, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

YOU DON’T NEED THAT MANY PAIRS OF DERBY SKINZ.

WHAT GEAR ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING OUT AS A DTS SPONSORED SKATER?
