The Newcastle Roller Girls are pleased to announce that The Funky Butt Club at the Cumberland Arms in Newcastle is sponsoring Kalamity James for our next bout, facing off against Liverpool Roller Birds, in Crouching Blocker, Hidden Jammer!
The bout, on Geordie soil, will see the NRG hitting the track to try and get a hat trick of home wins.

Glasgow’s Maiden Grrders v NRG’s Canny Belters
Arc Sports Centre
We’re packing the bus & hitting the North for maybe our toughest bout yet, as NRG take on Glasgow’s mighty Maiden Grrders. The Arc Sports Centre on Cowcaddens Road will be shaken to its foundations as these two tough teams of brawling bruisers battle it out.
Buoyed by their recent scorching home win against Granite City Roller Girls of Aberdeen, can Newcastle take it over the border score their 1st victory on Scottish soil? Or will they be dashed against the Maidens’ legendary walls of steel?
