If you are coming along to The Memorial Stadium for our game against Hartlepool, we hope you will purchase a copy of our matchday programme, The Pirate.
Having undergone a major revamp in the summer, our matchday magazine for the game will consist of 72 pages and will cost you just £3. For those of you who don’t always buy a programme because you think that you have seen all of the articles and features on our website, you might be pleasantly surprised. Much of the content is unique and exclusive to the programme and won’t have been published elsewhere.
In this issue manager Darrell Clarke and new Chairman Steve Hamer both pen their own columns and we carry interviews with Mark McChrystal and Liam Lawrence, while our centre spread is given over to the momentous events of ten days ago, when our new owners met the press and the fans!
Our four page Academy section includes one youth team report, one reserve report and news of our Coach Mentoring programme as well as a profile of First Year Scholar Lewis Leigh-Gilchrist.
We’re sure that those of you who have supported the club for a number of years will enjoy our extended history section, which includes reports on four previous games against our visitors and a feature known as The Great and the Good, recently voted our standout article by Programme Monthly magazine.
Alongside all of the official club news, we also bring you an eclectic mix of articles from a number of contributors, all of whom have one thing in common; they are all Gasheads!
The latest commercial news and thoughts from the Supporters Club and Young Pirates are also included and we hope that if you haven’t previously purchased a copy of our programme you will make a point of buying one on Tuesday.
