Bouts & Events 2009
This was certainly NOT a bout to be missed. Both teams rallied up the crowd with a nail biting and high adrenaline event! Well done again Leeds and thank you very much Rainy City Rollergirls for hosting.
LRD would also like to thank our Coach Jerry Attric and Rosewhip for being the best line up managers on the day, our wonderful supporters, merch ladies and gents and finally our Refs- the Enforcer, Matt the Knife and Deadly Nedly.
Well done LRD! Big thank you to Middlesbrough Milk Rollers for hosting such a exciting and wicked mini tournament. And another big thanks and congrats to all the participating teams: Quad Squad (Severn Roller Torrent, Lincolnshire Bombers, Bedford and Blitz Dames)and Central City Rollergirls!
Leeds Roller Dolls took on the mighty Sheffield Steel Rollergirls in West Yorkshire's first ever public roller derby bout!
Summer Horror Day was held at Leeds' Royal Armouries in the Savilles Hall conferencing centre and boasted real-life (?) zombies, monster-mashing music, 2 bars (one for beers, one for cocktails!), merch heaven (to get all your roller derby t-shirts, bags, knickers etc) and 28 roller girls battling it out for the Yorkshire crown!
Recap of the day can be found here
Two days, 12 leagues from the UK and Europe, 16 action-packed roller derby bouts! The roller derby event of the year on 18-19 July 2009 at Earls Court, located in central London.
Another double header for London! On the 6th June Leeds Roller Dolls took on London Rollergirls B Team - Brawl Saints! Then LRG's all star team, London Brawling went head to head with BBDD Brummie Bomshells for their rematch!
Thank you all who came to support us at our first public bout. LRD put up a good fight and played fair and square but we lost to BBDD. LRD would like to thank BBDD for hosting our first public bout, it was a great experience!
