Chaos Engine, Team NSO
Position: Manchester Roller Derby League Head NSO. I love to toot my whistle as Jam Timer
Skating since: February 2016
Favourite gear: My wheels. They keep me going. And they screech I like making lots of noise. Or my whistle. Because I like making lots of noise. Generally I’m noisy. But hopefully in an organised if slightly chaotic kinda way. I can be quietened by being fed cake.
Derby heroes: So so many. Anyone on skates from just starting to world cup legends. And anyone off skates. All the volunteers that make Derby happen from officiating to just helping set up or bake cakes…..actually especially anyone who bakes cakes. They’re like heroes +.
But I can honestly say that anytime I’m doing anything Derby I’m surrounded by heroes. And cake
Highlights so far: Just been made my leagues Head NSO for off skates. As far as on skates. My legging game. I feel it’s strong. Or at least loud. Eating cake and not puking on track was also a highlight!
Origin of derby name: It’s all in the name. I like to have a bit of fun and Wild*Cards can be anything. Do all the things! Eat all the cake!!
Notable injuries? I had a nasty Velcro rub once. So not really yet thankfully. Touch wood. (Taps head). Cake made it all better.
Hobbies/interests outside derby: Any sort of extreme sport I’ll give it a go. Snowboarding is always fun. I like the snow. To be fair any sort of slightly mad loony thing I’ll probably be up for. I like to geek. Wars vs Trek. Why cant we just love it all? Animated films. Hell yeah. Cake.
