New Wheeled Order
Started skating: July 2011
Position: Blocker, Pivot
Favourite skate gear: Super cheap head scarf. As soon as I started wearing a headscarf under my helmet my comfort multiplied a hundred fold. No longer would I end up with the sweat of victory and hard work getting in my face.
Derby hero: Demanda Riot, B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls. She’s terrifying, smart and forceful on track.
Career highlight so far: Playing in the Men’s European Championships in 2011 and making it through to the second day of the tournament. Never have I felt such heartbreak followed by such joy. It’s by far my favourite derby experience to date.
Height: 6′ 1″ off skates
One thing most people don’t know about me: I used to have a Sunday job in my local village butchers. I’m now vegetarian, but for unrelated reasons. Support your local butcher, yo.
What’s the origin of your derby name? An evening spent at my parent’s house trying to come up with assorted names resulted in a list on the back of some paper. I believe it was my Dad who came up with Sausage Roller, followed by the recommendation I definitely don’t use it as a name.
