Lydia Scott

a.k.a Deadly DeVito

Until she found roller derby, Lydia was not at all active – something that she says stems from hating PE at school. At 4ft 10 she has always found sports – like netball – tough. However she says she loves roller derby because it’s a sport where size and shape doesn’t matter.

Seven years ago, Lydia went to watch a friend play roller derby and decided she would give it a go. As a complete novice to skating, she bought all the gear expecting to try it once and then give up. She surprised herself by loving the sport and making lots of new friends through the London Rock n Rollers club.

Outside of roller derby, Lydia works part-time for a charity, and part-time as a pet sitter. She lives with her partner who has a disability. Lydia loves music and has played in a band.
