Get the latest copy of The Pirate

Our matchday programme,‘The Pirate’, for the game against Dartford, contains all the usual news and views and costs just £3.

It’s packed with many features you won’t have seen on our website.

Manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes, and this week we continue our feature that profiles the scholars in our Academy. In this issue it’s the turn of second year scholar Harrison Trueman.

Steve Mildenhall and Lee Mansell are interviewed for this issue, so check out what ‘Mildy’ has to say on the red card he picked up at Eastleigh and what ‘Manse’ says about the draw with Dover on Saturday.

The featured player in this issue’s centre spread is Jamie Lucas who is, of course, currently on loan with Weston super Mare.

There’s news from the Supporters Club, Young Pirates, and Helpline, while the Fanzone page gives all of you an opportunity to participate, so if you have a birthday or anniversary or anything else you would like us to mention in the next issue, then please get in touch.

Are you related to a Rovers player from the Victorian era? If so, check out Stephen Byrne’s Victorian Rovers article and get in touch if you have any photos of players from over a century ago.

As well as the Victorian Rovers feature, the history pages feature season 1985/86 and also looks at programmes from that season as well as a look at what we were listening to back then.

In addition, you can discover what football supporters were reading back in 1972 and fast forward to season 1994/95 as Rovers went on a journey that would eventually lead to Wembley.

Don’t forget the Chairman’s notes, either, as tells us his thoughts on the Ice Bucket Challenge that he and Toni Watola endured on Saturday!

There’s an eclectic mix of articles from a range of contributors, all of them Rovers supporters, so if you haven’t previously purchased a matchday programme when you’ve come to a game, try it tonight – you might be pleasantly surprised!

Cant make it to the game this evening but still want to read the programme? Never fear because you can order a copy from the Club Shop Webpage.
