A-Team vs Portsmouth Roller Wenches…and our birthday


Over a week has passed, and I think I am almost recovered from celebrating Bristol Roller Derby’s 5th birthday. And what an incredible weekend it was…sitting down, going through our twitter feed and photos of the day I’m getting excited butterflies in my stomach all over again.


2014 was a year of change for BRD. In a relatively short period of time we lost a number of our strongest players to something called ‘life’. It turns out some people have one beyond derby, who would have thought?! Lots of changes and a tough season meant BRD had to stop, refocus, restructure and set new goals. All of these changes, alongside an excellent training programme delivered by our coaches, meant that BRD was on the up by the end of the year….just in time for Champs!
