Newcastle Roller Girl

Picture of member of the Newcastle Roller Girls.

On Sunday the Leeds Roll Dolls hosted hosted The Great Yorkshire Showdown, hours of flat track roller derby.

After the first bout between the Leeds Roller Dolls and the Newcastle Roller Girls, I caught up with this member of their team outside the building. The daylight was so much better than the terrible lighting inside the Huddersfield Sports Centre.

This Newcastle Roller Girl is I their No 27, and her skate name is Whippi Longstocking. Normally when I get a snap of a roller girl I get them to turn around once because their roller derby name is emblazoned on the back of their t shirt.

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.
