Charlie Colkett graces the cover of our matchday programme for the game against Fleetwood Town.

We have had some very complimentary remarks about the changes we have made to our matchday magazinethis season and the aim now is to maintain our high standards for the rest of the season!

In the Fleetwood issue manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes and we carry interviews with Head of Medical Services Keith Graham and Saturday’s Man of the Match Daniel Leadbitter.

Jermaine Easter is our centrefold poster in this issue so it’s an opportunity to purchase a copy and get your poster signed.

If you can remember what was happening in the Rovers camp the last time we played a home match against Fleetwood then page 41 is written with you in mind. The match was played in October 2013  and ended in a 3-1 win for the visitors.

Amazingly, it’s 20 years since we played our first game at The Memorial Stadium and that fact is celebrated by historian Leigh Edwards, who looks back at key moments for the club in the month of November over the course of those 20 years.

Stephen Byrne pens a regular feature on players who have appeared for us at The Mem in the last 20 years and who have the same surname as players from long ago. The Name’s The Same features  Dave Martin in this issue, along with Henry John Martin, a founder member and skipper of the Black Arabs way back in 1883.

We also bring you news and views from our support organisations, namely The Supporters Club, Helpline, The Presidents Club and The Young Pirates.

Our Academy section brings you a reserve team report, a match report from the FA Youth Cup and photos of our U-9’s who were introduced to supporters at the Gillingham match, as well as a profile of First Year Scholar Liam Armstrong.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg! With 84 pages to get through, we believe there is something for everyone in this season’s programme and hope that as many of you as possible will purchase a copy on
Tuesday and for the rest of the season.

Priced at only £3.00 it really is a bargain!

The Pirate is available from the club shop or sellers around the ground…don’t forget to buy yours!
