Where my derby name came from: Peggy is my Great Grandmother. She is an absolute legend and I miss her very much.

Favourite derby moment: The list is endless. One that sticks out is being awarded MVP and getting NO MAJORS against London Batter C. I can’t even describe to you how that made me feel. A funny favourite moment was one of our first home games and a skater on opposite team decided to pester me during a power jam. She was much smaller than me and was trying really hard to knock me over. I let her carry on, looked over to our coach to which she shouted for me to hit her back. So I did. She was a pile on the floor. There’s a video on youtube and its pretty hilarious!

Worst derby injury: I had an absolute corker of a black eye! The funny thing is, I complimented a fellow derby skater spectator and her black eye before the game and I came home with one! It lasted for about 6 weeks and was pretty impressive. I had a lot of compliments on how much it suited me! I’ve also fractured my Coccyx OUCHHHHH! – I have video evidence of this moment and it makes my bum tense every time!

Life outside derby: This sport has driven me to succeed and has given me the confidence to believe in myself to help me start my own business. I revamp old, unwanted furniture and give each piece a rock ‘n’ roll twist!

Random fact: I have a huge obsession with skateboarders and Elvis Presley.
