If you are coming along to The Memorial Stadium for our game against Cambridge United, 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 pens his own column and we carry interviews with Chris Lines and Ollie Clarke, while our centre spread is given over those players who have worn the number three jersey since the year 2000. Hands up if you remember Ijah Anderson or Robbie Ryan.
Our four page Academy section includes two youth team reports, news of some of the U-16 players who will become first year scholars next season and a profile of current First Year Scholar Luke Russe.
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 Saturday.
