I have wide and flat feet. Do you have any recommendations on what type of boot and plate might work best for me?

A little more than 2 years ago, Lead Jammer launched, one of two UK based derby magazines. We caught up with editor Moxie McMurder to see what publishing 8 issues & counting has brought in changes & experience.

This Week at Skatehut:
Both of our sponsored teams were playing this weekend and the results were impressive! CCR A and B met Croydon A and B while the Crash Test Brummies took on old friends the Super Smash Brollers.

At CCR, the B team bout kept fans on edge with a very close scoreline throughout, having never met on track before it was great to see both teams do so well. CCR suffered from some penalty trouble (and an unfortunate jammer injury in the first jam) and Croydon took the win by 10 points.

The A team game was equally as tough, yet atmosphere between the teams was great and CCR are lucky enough to have ex-Croydon girl Ghouldielocks in their ranks to give some insight into the opposition. Every point was fought for in what was a very physical game but in the end CCR A took the win 232/107. Several days on and both teams are still talking about how much they enjoyed it (and nursing bruises in a kaleidoscope of colours)

This weekend also saw the launch of CCR's new kit, sponsored by Skatehut. It took a long time to get this just right and the team were keen to ensure that it could withstand the abuse of bout day yet still be cool, comfortable and look good! The design is perfect- created by CCR's Lola Whip it is a reflection of where CCR are now, Strong, Athletic and proud of where they come from.  CCR are very proud to have Skatehut as a sponsor.

At CTB, with several International Skaters still having just competed in the World Cup and some new faces to the roster, it was difficult to judge how things would go. Super Smash Brollers are a tight team with a combination of strong, physical skaters but also, the likes of Jammie Dodger- probably one of the fastest skaters in UK derby. The Brummies had a fantastic game, with tight walls, strong jammers and some very clever tactical play. It is clear that whilst some of the team have been off training for National Squads, the rest of the team have been hard at work refining their skills and forming a fearsome unit. There is a lot of love between these teams and it showed on track, even with the constant Jammer recycling from CTB there were still smiles on every skaters face. Special mention should go to Carrnage who played his first, full length public bout and walked away with an award for Best Jammer.

After a crazy week at the World Cup, we spend much of last week editing footage, photos and articles about our time there. We were lucky enough to be visited by Jonathan R and Quadzilla of Team USA along with another special guest who will become known soon.

This week, we took delivery of some S1 helmets and they are already flying out of the door as expected, we have also been busy on custom skate orders. There is a lot of love for Antik's following Quadzilla's instore session!

This weekend, CCR will be facing Croydon in a double header in Birmingham, it also marks the 50th Home Game for CCR and the unveiling of their new kit so it is set to be pretty special. Skatehut will be there with a stall as usual although Jelly will be off playing the A team bout so will be covered by one of the resident CCR kit geeks.

This week at Skatehut:
Whenever there is a big derby event going on, there is always a surge in the number of people through our door full of ideas, motivation and hope. After spending a weekend watching some of the highest level derby ever seen in the UK at Anarchy in the UK  I think it is fair to say that it has left a lasting impression. At training last week I watched as both my team mates and I all spent a little more time on our individual skills, refined some of our drills and generally talked about what we had seen. The first ever Anarchy in the UK event was one of the very first bouts I had ever been to so it is fair to say I probably didn't appreciate it it full. Two years on and I was glued to my seat, watching the differences in pack work, physicality, footwork, communication. Sometimes it is easy to look ahead at your next goal, whether that be passing minimums, making the squad for your teams next game or just mastering a particular skill or strategy. Events like Anarchy are a reminder to the UK and European derby community that it is possible to aim high and succeed if you put the hard work in.

I expect every team who practised last week will have uttered the words 'I saw LRG do this' and 'did you see Kami/Juke/Stef/Rogue/etc etc' These people are our heroes and watching them compete on home soil is not only a treat for UK fans- it is an inspiration

Over the last week or two, we finally got the go ahead to announce our involvement as skating officials for the Blood & Thunder World Cup 2014 in Dallas, Texas!

+Karen Slater  +Steven Rollin Rat Douglas and I all got the acceptance email from tournament head referee Erik Rawk.
Since the previous world cup was too soon into my roller derby officiating career, I missed out on going to the inaugural event. Having watched the live stream two and a half years ago to being able to go and work this one is definitely a bucket list moment!

Getting all three of us over to Dallas is proving to be pretty expensive, we’re counting on the friends and family that we’ve built up in over ten years’ combined experience to help us to get there. If you’d like to donate, any amount would be a massive help towards our endeavour. Thank you!
