Matty Taylor graces the cover of our matchday programme for the game against Peterborough United.

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

In the Peterborough issue manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes and we carry interviews with Taylor and Jake Clarke-Salter.

The centre pages are given over to this season’s team photo 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 The Posh then page 41 is written with you in mind. The match was played in March 2011 and ended in a 2-2 draw.

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 October 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  Neal
Trotman in this issue, along with Reginald Wilfred Trotman, who played for the club back in 1927.

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 an Academy team photo, as two U-18 match reports and news of the U-10 lads who will be introduced to the crowd at half time tomorrow.

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 Saturday 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!
