As ever, 2014 has been crazy busy already for us Brawlers - and it’s only February! Here’s a round up of all the things you need to know:
Next home bout: Saturday 22 February
First up the Tiger Bay B team will take on Leicester’s Dolly Rockit Rollers All Stars. On paper our teams are fairly evenly matched, being placed 46th and 48th respectively. This will be the first time the two teams have met on track and our B team are keen to continue the promise they showed at the end of last year with consecutive victories against Leeds Roller Dolls’ Whip Its and Helsinki’s Queen B’s.
The second game of the day sees the Tiger Bay A team up against Birmingham’s Central City Rollergirls. This will be the first time these two teams have met on track with Tiger Bay only ever having played – and beaten – CCR’s B team before. CCR’s last game (against Sheffield in November) saw them bag a big win, with a 160 point advantage, while our A team finished 2013 losing back to back games to Helsinki’s A team and London Rollergirls’ Brawl Saints. Following our recent defeat to London Brawling we are hungry to reclaim our winning ways!

Tiger Bay Brawlers are off to the USA… but we need your help to get there
Here at Tiger Bay we are gearing up for what may just be our biggest challenge yet as we take part in this year’s East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX), one of THE events in the roller derby calendar! We’re one of only seven non-US teams representing and the only UK team on the line up! We can’t wait to take part in our first US tournament.
BUT we need to raise a huge £15,000 to help us get there. If you can support us please visit our fundraising page and donate what you can. You could even bag yourself some awesome Brawler merch to say thank you!
