The Maiden Grrders, Glasgow Roller Derby's second travel team, face off against London Rollergirls' C Team: Batter C Power, on Saturday 27th September in their first ever match up!
The Maiden Grrders are currently ranked 33rd in Europe according to FlatTrackStats but Batter C Power just pip them to the post and are currently ranked at number 31. Two spaces between these teams in the European rankings can only mean one thing: this game will be tight, tough and definitely one to watch!
Both of these teams have everything to play for and both sides are anxious to take home a win!
The Glasgow side have put up some impressive wins in the past against forminable teams from Barcelona, Oslo, Aberdeen, Dundee, Leeds (B) and Furness. Losing out to Newcastle recently has put the fire back in their bellies and the Maiden's are hungry to add another win to their total! Everyone is expecting Batter C Power to put their world class training sessions with London Rollergirls, who are currently ranked third in the world, to good use and give the Maiden's a hard fought game that is not to miss!
The Head Coach of Team Ireland will be taking to the track for Batter C Power: Sinister Mary Clarence, against a Maiden's roster that consists of three skaters currently on the training squads for Team Scotland and Team Ireland: Fever, Suffra Jett and Jess E Ska. Expect some world class roller derby and a lot of excitement!
