We are delighted to announce that one of our regulars, Eve Gormley, will be representing Great Britain in the Junior Roller Derby World Cup in Philadelphia, and we are her proud sponsors!

On 23rd and 24th July 16-year-old Eve, who is a student at Lincoln College, will join her Team GB Junior Roller Derby teammates from across the country to compete against teams from Europe, USA East, USA West, Canadteam gb roller derby lady macdeath sk8s a and Australia. It will be the first time that Great Britain has taken part.

Eve, whose roller derby nickname is ‘Lady MacDeath’ has skated with the Lincolnshire Bombinos team based in Lincoln since 2012 and is one of their longest standing members. She chose the nickname because she is an English Literature student and loves Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

“I’m so excited and honoured to have been selected for Team GB Junior Roller Derby and to have the opportunity to compete against the best junior roller derby players in the world! It’s every young person’s dream to line up alongside fantastic teammates to represent their country doing something they love and I can’t quite believe that I’m going to be doing that in July”. – Eve

Mum Beverley Gormley said:

“We’re so proud that Eve is going to be able to realise her dream of competing internationally in such an exciting sport! She’s worked extremely hard and it’s great to see her hard work and dedication paying off. I want to say a big thank you to all of her coaches at Bombinos and to her sponsor SK8s UK who have encouraged her to practice her fancy footwork at their roller discos. Without them, she wouldn’t have got this far.”
