Auld Reekie Roller Girls’ All-Star Reserves will be taking on Oxford Roller Derby in a fast and fierce demonstration of athleticism on wheels. Come and see which team will hit, whip and skate their way to victory!
Edinburgh’s All-Star Reserves had a fantastic 2014 culminating in a decisive win against Sweden’s Crime City Rollers in November. Meanwhile, Oxford have gained much experience by taking part in the Heartland Series tournament, in which they were one of eight from a total of 24 English and Welsh teams who qualified to battle it out for the tournament’s cup. Although they didn’t win, Oxford is sure to have benefitted from the experience, and will bring their new skills and strategy to their game against Auld Reekie. But the All-Star Reserves will have the advantage of being on home ground with the raucous support of the Edinburgh crowd. Who will prevail?
We collared the All Star Reserves’ captain at practice, who told us ‘We’re looking forward to this game! We’re hoping that all the hard work we put into training in 2014 – combined with a wee rest over Christmas – will pay off, and we’ll give Oxford a run for their money!’.
It’s sure to be an eventful game, full of big hits and speedy skating. There will also be the usual fantastic stalls in attendance where the public can snap up some of our snazzy merchandise, or tuck in to the delicious cakes on offer. Come and see the sport that everyone’s been talking about!
