Reblogged from

It’s been five years since Manchester Roller Derby burst onto the scene with their all-inclusive approach to Roller Derby, and to celebrate they’re hosting a unique double header on Saturday 7 March.

Boy, girl, whatever else - Manchester Roller Derby never wanted it to matter, which is why we’ve trained co-ed since our inception, and why our All-Stars are the undefeated champions of it in the UK. So, we’re celebrating our 5th birthday the only way that seems right - with a co-ed roller derby double header.
Our All-Stars will face their toughest challenge to date in Crash Central – a mixture of Crash Test Brummies, a frequent match up for MRD’s Men’s A Team New Wheeled Order, and Central City Roller Girls, who have only ever faced MRD’s ladies as their B-team.
Manchester’s Co-Ed B-Team – the Furious Engines – will be facing a side from the Wirral – the Savage Animals are a mix of the Wirral Whipiteres’ ladies The Savage Lillies and best frenemies of Choas Engine – The Pack Animals.

All the details for the days events can be found at our facebook event. You know the drill, get your tickets HERE to save some serious ££, they’re £7 in advance but £9 on the door. Any derby fans under 10 years old can enjoy the action for free.
