Favourite on-track position?
Anything, I just want to play.
Why did you get involved with roller derby?
I was looking for a new hobby and spotted an ex Cat’s piece in the Wakefield Express. I went along and was immediately hooked.
The best thing about being a Cat is…
Getting to skate with a bunch of incredible women (and men) and be proud to call them my teammates.
