Club News

Our matchday programme, ‘The Pirate’, for the game against Altrincham, contains all the usual news and views and costs just £3 for 56 pages.

Packed with many features you won’t have seen on our website, ‘The Pirate’ has already picked up two Programme of the Year Awards this season.

Manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes, and this week we catch up with our U-18 side who kicked off their Merit League Two fixtures with a win against Torquay last Saturday.

The two major player interviews are with Steve Mildenhall and Mark McChrystal while the featured player in the centre spread is Lee Brown, who has just returned from Cyprus where he represented the England ‘C’ team on Tuesday.

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.

In our history section Stephen Byrne looks back at Rovers in the Victorian era and if you are able to add anything, by way of information or photos to illustrate these articles, please get in touch.

As well as that, the history pages feature season 1990/91 and we also look at programmes from that season and see what we were listening to back then.

In addition, you can discover what football supporters were reading back in 1955 and and we also fast forward to season 1994/95 as Rovers went on a journey that would eventually lead to Wembley.

There’s an eclectic mix of articles from a wide 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 tomorrow – you might be pleasantly surprised!
