New re­cruits for team

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - FRONT PAGE - Kenny Mac­Don­ald

Doon­hame Roller Derby mem­bers skated through another fun re­cruit­ment night in a bid to sign up new play­ers.

The all-girl group was formed in 2013 and set up the first roller derby league in the south of Scot­land.

Now they are look­ing to re­cruit more mem­bers and staged a derby at Dum­fries Academy in an ef­fort to coax more women to join.

A spokes­woman said: “There were a cou­ple of new faces who turned up, which is en­cour­ag­ing.

“How­ever, we are still on the look­out for skaters, ref­er­ees, of­fi­cials and fundrais­ers.”

Any­one who is in­ter­ested can find out more in­for­ma­tion on the group’s Face­book and web­site pages.
