In the next few days we’ll have a report up here on yesterday’s (April 30th) epic double header against Newcastle B (a win!) and the Hoodlum Gang. In the meantime, if you missed the game – or if you were there but missed the fanzine (it ran out faster than any previous issue has!) – click the cover image above to be taken to the online version. This includes interviews with Rockers stars Skate Bush, Speedy Gonzalex and Bionic Betty. We also hear from both opposing teams, Irish Mist takes on Newcastle’s Fugazi in the seven questions challenge, our spy reports from inside the current Rockers Fresh Meat, and loads more! Special thanks to all our lovely interviewees. Also big thanks to our photographers (John Hesse, NSP 189, Roller Derby On Film and Dave Moore) and our lovely advermatisers including http://www.meadowyurts.co.uk/ and http://www.thewick.pub/ Yay!
This weekend saw the mighty Brighton Rockers host two teams from over the water. The A-team AllStars took of Belgium’s Gent GO-GO Roller Girls, whilst the B-team Rockerbillies faced Switchblade Roller Grrrls of Lille, France. We’ll have a full report on the action in a few days (or months, if our recent slovenliness is any indication). In the meantime click on the image above to check out the online version of the newly redesigned fanzine that we gave out at the event. Inside you’ll find three big interviews – with Shambolic, Irish Mist and referees Noise Tank and LaserHammer – plus a festive quiz, news from all six Sussex derby leagues and more. There will be a few physical copies in the Evening Star pub from tonight if you’re after one. Also, of you want to vote in our Player Of The Year poll (which took place yesterday) e-mail your picks for some or all of these categories – Player, Jammer, Blocker, B-teamer, Rookie, Icon, Official and Other – to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 13th December. Cheers.
Sunday saw the mighty Brighton Rockers hosted the final day of British Championship Tier 2 South action. Playoff and relegation places were decided as the Rockers took on the London Rockin’ Rollers, Royal Windsor Rollergirls did battle with Bristol Roller Derby, and Portsmouth Roller Wenches faced the Seaside Sirens. We’ll have a full report on the day’s events in the next week or so. Did you miss out on a copy of the fanzine we gave out on at the game? It features interviews with all six competing teams, loads of stats (including top jammer and blocker tables for all the sides), a report on the Brighton B-team’s Eastbourne Extreme debut and more. Click on the image above to read the online version. All the physical copies were snapped up on the day, so unfortunately there are none in the Evening Star this time. Sorry!
