A TEAM is getting ready to roll as its new season approaches.

Durham City Rolling Angels is hoping to recruit new members to its roller derby squad.

Leslie Ann Spence, who has been playing for the side for more than a year, said: “I really enjoy it and it keeps you pretty fit.

“You do have to have confidence on skates and that improves as your training gets better.”

The team, which is sponsored by the Angel group which has three pubs in Durham – including The Angel and The John Duck – is looking to raise its profile in the area.

Andy Hughes, The Angel manager, said: “One of our staff started playing and she was really enthusiastic about the training and the games.

“The John Duck is an ideal base for them to try and drum up players and supporters for the coming year.

The team meets twice a week. For more information, visit the John Duck in Claypath, or email Durhamcityrollingangels@gmail.com.
