How did you get into roller derby?

A friend who skates suggested I go along and try it, and I'm so glad I did.

 

Favourite derby moment:

Playing that first game for my team and managing to actually score points!

 

How did you choose your derby name and number?

My original name was 'ElizaDeath' but after the rebrand from GCRG to GCRD I decided to go for something less morbid. Lizzee Rascal was my boyfriend's suggestion. The number is because I like maths and pi.

 

What advice would you give to anyone interested in trying roller derby?

Come and give it a go, no experience or ability requried!

 

What's your favourite thing about GCRD?

How much the club is growing. We now have a strong B Team, and there always really amazing skaters joing and passing mins to make us an even bigger league.

 

Pre-game rituals:

Stupid dancing and lots and lots of water.

 

Any skaters that inspire you?

So many. I love how Lexi Lightspeed from London skates, could watch her all day.

 

What would you do differently if you were starting out today?

Buy better knee pads and toe stops sooner!

 

Skate set-up:

Blue streak skates, avenger plates, morph 88/93 wheels and bionic toe stops.

 

Derby goals:

To become a stronger more stable skater to help my jamming and blocking.

 

Hobbies outside of GCRD:

Playing with my pet rats
