British Champs Tier 3 – Games 4 & 5

Kent Roller Girls’ last 2 British Championship games were just 2 weeks apart, with KRG vs Plymouth City Roller Derby on July 3rd followed by KRG vs Cornwall Roller Derby in the Championship Tier 3 South final on July 17th. These last two games would determine, firstly, whether the league would be heading to playoffs, and secondly, whether they would be heading there as champions.

Game 4 – vs Plymouth City Roller Derby:

Kent looked strong from the outset, racking up points before Plymouth managed to get any on the board. Plymouth were determined but only managed 13 to Kent’s 158 by half-time.

The South Coast Roll is an annual event held at Goodwood race track in West Sussex. Those aiming to skate a full marathon (that’s 26 miles!!) need to complete 11 laps of the undulating track, whatever the weather. Last year saw our skaters battling strong winds and rain so we’re hoping that things improve on that front this time round!

KRG Profile: Cerbeross

Name: Cerbeross

Position: Head Referee

Story behind the name: When I started in derby I was a security dog handler, which involved guarding places with my dog. Cerberus in greek mythology was the 3 headed hound that guarded the gates of the underworld. So I mashed my name with the legend and it all kinda fitted together.

Favourite Ref hand signal: Nowadays it’s the lead jammer signal. Start with my right hand behind my back to remind me my jammer is on their initial pass then when they get lead jammer I fire my hand out super quick. Although back when I started reffing the signal for misconduct was doing an “I’m a little teapot dance” which I kinda miss.
