22 The Rottwheeler

The Rotwheeler 22What is the inspiration behind your derby name?
I have worked with dogs for 13 years, so I decided it would have to be doggie related and, just like a rottie, my bark is worse than my bite.

What is the inspiration behind your number?
The number of the bus that takes me to The Tanners.

What was your best fresh meat moment?
Transferring to Newcastle.

Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?
Sunderland #rematch

What advice would you give to someone who wants to get involved with their local team?
Why not? Be prepared for injuries, massive commitment, sweating, aching limbs, fantastic people and amazing times.

What other sports / training do you do when you’re not on eight wheels?
I take my dog Parsnip to dog agility, she is great at it and I’m getting much better. We’ve even won a couple of rosettes! The derby fitness has really helped.
