We are super proud to announce that, last weekend, we secured our promotion to Division 2 of the British Roller Derby Championships for next year, following our playoff match against Norfolk on Saturday 10th September.
To recap, we won all 5 of our divisional matches in this year’s championships against Cornwall, Devon, Surrey, Plymouth and Bath, so we needed one victory at playoffs to secure our promotion. Held in Newark, playoffs involved 8 teams from across the country (South, East, West and North groups) playing to win the title of Tier 3 champion for 2016.
