Totally awesome! If anyone can sign in to comments and say you can donate at teamenglandrollerderby.com if you want to support England the I'll be your biggest fan, I have to run to breakfast and meeting and stuff now. Thanks Alex!

You're welcome. I did include a donation plug and link, but it got excised during the editing process!

And I've now added a link in the comments. I'll shortly have a shiny guardian G by my name there too, which will make it a bit more obvious.

Great article!

I'm glad you didn't waste half of it explaining the game (as every other article still does) but instead use the commentary to draw people in. People interested in the sport will google to find out about it.

Precisely my idea. I've linked to the LRG 'What is derby' page in the comments too, for those who are interested -- and asked for the link to be put up top too.

It made the Guardian.co.uk front page! Link appears in between North Korea and The Killing 2, nicely positioned next to the sport section.
Great work!

People at work are emailing me about this because it's linked on the front page :)
