Vice Squad vs Roller Derby Madrid Las Gatas

It’s not often we get to host teams from far-off places, and so Roller Derby Madrid’s ‘Las Gatas’ versus Croydon’s Vice Squad was set to be an extremely exciting game. But first, we thought we’d give Madrid a real taste of Croydon hospitality – at a questionable bar (where a fight broke out before 9pm) for lots of takeaway pizza. We also treated them to the ultra-British delicacy, “hotdogs at Apocalex’s house” – whereupon Herbie tried to learn their derby secrets by plying them with whiskey, but alas they wouldn’t tell, and even if they did, Herbie doesn’t speak Spanish. That’s true athletic preparation there. We learned that from Bonnie Thunders.

Riot Squad vs One Love Roller Dolls

November 1 2014 marked a bittersweet day for Croydon Roller Derby’s Riot Squad (A team).

While Riot won against the evenly matched One Love Roller Dolls, who travelled all the way from Antwerp Belgium, CRD also said goodbye to the indominatable 23 Gin Atomic who is transferring to Brighton Rockers after three years with us.

But with Riot clearly wanting this bout to be one to remember for our Belgian guests and for Gin too, it was one of the most riveting, fast, strategically tight and fiercesome game to date.
