Crash Test Brummies
Name: Boots Manuva
Position: Coaching Benches and Running Lines
Started Skating: May 2010 (I think?) but didn’t join Brummie ranks until 2013.
Gear: For coaching – All stationary used is sponsored by the supplies cupboard in the photocopying room in my office and Mommy Manuva bought me a pink Fox 40 for Xmas, bless her. I like to watch stuff here and here and get some ideas from here and here, or if all else fails via here.
Career Highlight: Playing: Central City Rollergirls vs Tiger Bay Brawlers (Feb 2014) was my favourite game I’ve ever played in. Our team had a few hiccups in the run up but we really pulled together on game day.
Coaching: Seeing some of the newer CTB guys coming through from pre-mins to bout days and pulling off plays they’ve been working on at practice week in, week out, a real testimony to their hard work.
Favourite Skate Out Song: I’d love for CTB to skate out to Boys Boys Boys by Sabrina.
One thing you might not know about me: I talk way too much to keep secrets so you probably know it all already.
