I thought i would highlight a few of the best Roller Derby videos doing the rounds on Youtube,theres quite a lot out there,so this may turn into a series.
All these feature American Leagues,and yes there will be a Scottish league post at some point.Theres quite a bit of background info on Derby in these videos,from how the sport is played,to an insight into how much hard work actually goes on behind the scenes to run a league.All interesting and indeed, educational stuff.
First up is Roller Derby Revival,from the Cincinnatti Rollergirls
Next a two parter from the Windy City Rollergirls,Chicago
Finally a four part video from The Boston Derby Dames
Perth's finest, the Fair City Rollers will be holding a Fresh Meat session at The Bell Sports Centre,in Perth,7pm on Tuesday 27th of September.

They will be able to answer all queries about what to wear,safety equipment,skates etc.
Once again Aoanla treats us to an excellent review this time for the recent Glasgow Roller Girls home team bout between Hell's Belles and Bad Omens. As we have come to expect,its a blow by blow account of the game with pics and video.
