British Champs 2016 Round 1 - Halifax Bruising Banditas v Blackpool Roller Derby
Our first game of 2016 sees us travel all the way to Aberdeen to face off against Blackpool Roller Derby! We can't wait to get cracking at the new British Championships season. Our first game sees us play a team we have never face before so it promises to be an interesting bout.
We are currently ranked 164th on Flat Track Stats while Blackpool are ranked 174th, a mere 10 places (4 points) beneath us. Despite being only their third year of bouting the Blackpool team have already made a name for themselves. Last year they finished a solid 3rd in their Tier 4 West table with two loses (against the top two finishers) and two convincing wins. They will be hoping to improve on last years performance no doubt.
The Banditas definitely want to improve on last year! 2015 wasn't the most successful for us, especially in terms of score-lines, but it was undoubtedly one of the most educational. We learnt so much about ourselves, the team and how to improve our game-play. We have wasted no time in getting back to work after the Christmas break and have already gathered a whole new bag of tricks to try out against our Tier 4 North opponents.
After last year's unfortunate forfeit we are really chuffed to make the trek to Aberdeen to be hosted by Granite City. It promises to be a weekend full of roller derby action and team fun! If you can make your way to the game we'd be over the moon to see you there!
