The Great Yorkshire Showdown – Leeds Roller Dolls

Picture of members of Leeds Roller Dolls B Team in a bout at Huddersfield.

Yesterday, Sunday The Leeds Roller Dolls took part in and hosted The Great Yorkshire Showdown.

Teams from Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Lincolnshire, Middlesbourough, Sheffield, Wakefield and our own Leeds Roller Dolls, introducing the New Second Travel Team came together at the Huddersfield Sports Centre.

The Dolls invited me over to see them in action again and I was pleased to be able to say hi.

I knew there was a team in Sheffield because I chatted to a member wearing a Sheffield Steel Rollergirls shirt at the last bout I attended but I had no idea there was a team in Wakefield, the Wakey Wheeled Cats.

The Leeds Roller Dolls may have been fielding their B team, but they were determined to show the other teams they meant business. I think the doll in the above photo shows this!

I will be posting more from the The Great Yorkshire Showdown over the next few days. There were some new faces to me, so excuse the lack of details. Also the lighting at the Huddersfield Sports Centre was horrible, making everything look yellowish, not ideal for reasonable photos.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
