M.U.R.D.A. make history!

Yesterday marked an important step in UK Roller Derby history ... the first ever Men's Roller Derby Bout on UK soil.  M.U.R.D.A  - the Men's UK Roller Derby Association, an amalgamation of refs from the various women's leagues across the country, split into two teams - Black Ice & Vanilla Ice -  for the closed bout at Great Barr Leisure Centre.

The first public display of Men's Derby will take place (ironically!) at Carnival of the Strange , a Lincolnshire Bombers event in Newark on November 21st.

Congratulations lads, if any of you fancy writing a few words about the bout for The Round-Up Bout, I'm sure our readers would love to hear how things went.
