The Brothers Grim take Victory

The Brothers Grim smashed their way to victory last weekend with their first win in the British Men’s Roller Derby Championships.

Representing Grimsby, the Brothers skated out against the Sons of Icarus (a team from North Wales). After a close bout – in which the score swung either way – the Brothers took the win with 208 points to 180.

The Brothers are competing in Tier 3 of the championships, along with teams from Middlesbrough, Leeds and Wales. Each Tier operates a ‘points’ based league table, where points are awarded according to wins and losses (similar to the league tables seen in professional football).

This bout was the Brothers third game as a team.

Roller derby is a full contact sport played on roller skates. It is played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match ups (jams) in which both teams designate a “jammer” who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to hinder the opposing jammer while assisting their own jammer—in effect, playing both offense and defence simultaneously. The Brothers Grim are a part of the Grim Reavers Roller Derby League and regularly play and train with them. Both the male and female teams are looking for players.
