Exclusive news and views from inside Bristol Rovers

If you are going to the match today, why not pick up a copy of our matchday programme, ‘The Pirate’. 

As usual we are issuing a 68 page issue for this League Two fixture against promotion chasing Oxford United, who have yet to lose an away game this season.

As always, manager John Ward pens his own exclusive programme notes and this week’s big interviews are with Steve Mildenhall and Michael Smith. 

Our six page history section is a must for those interested in the past and we continue a fascinating series concerning the Supporters Club, which is celebrating its centenary this year, as well as taking a look back at the promotion winning side of 1973/74.

We also have news and views from the current Supporters Club, Young Pirates, Education Department, and the Community Department.

Chairman Nick Higgs and Director Ken Masters are regular contributors to our matchday magazine, as are many supporters, thus giving you a truly eclectic mix of articles to read.

Our youth section this week brings you an interview with second year scholar Carlos Gonzalez Barra, who has had to adjust to living in Bristol, and getting used to our accent after moving from Spain two years ago!

We have news, also, of two new Development Centres being opened by our Academy, as well as a feature on the success of our latest Hospitality initiative.

Take a look, also, at the old photograph reproduced on page 66 and take your chance to win two tickets for a home game of your choice – the photo in the Accrington programme generated a fantastic response.

Along with some superb photos, including one of new signing Steven Gilleaspie, a few match reports and a comprehensive statistical section, we think we bring you an outstanding matchday magazine.

Priced at just £3 ‘The Pirate’ is available from the club shop or sellers around the ground…don’t forget to buy yours!
