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 longest serving Academy coach, Paul Britton, who recently celebrated a milestone birthday.
We bring you three major player interviews, with Lee Mansell, Tom Parkes and Ollie Clarke while the featured player in the centre spread is Andy Monkhouse.
There’s news from the Supporters Club, Young Pirates, and Helpline, while the Fanzone pages have been taken over by a very funny, and forthright, interview with Nick Day.
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 1966 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!
