Trinity on a roll with new derby kit
One of the Wakefield’s leading roller derby teams have secured a major partnership deal with a Wakefield shopping centre.
Trinity Rollers – the second team for the Wakey Wheeled Cats – have joined forces with Trinity Walk after the centre funded a new kit for them.
The deal – a first of its kind for the club – will see the shopping centre help raise the profile of the women’s sport to encourage more people to get their skates on.
Emma Mamwell, of the Trinity Rollers, said: “We not only share a name with our new partners at Trinity Walk, but a passion for growing sports participation within Wakefield. It’s a growing sport, amazing to watch and incredible to play. Now, thanks to Trinity, we have a new kit so our team looks the part – we can’t wait to get out there and start winning matches next season.”
Lucy Grice, marketing manager at Trinity Walk, added: “There’s a buzz around the city and thanks to teams like Trinity Rollers and the Wakey Wheeled Cats the city’s reach is going even further. We’re delighted to play our part, support the team and hopefully watch it grow.”
The Trinity Rollers recently played their first closed game against Durham City Rolling Angels and came away with a win of 198 – 133.
