Take a look at what's inside Monday's match day programme!

If you are coming to The Memorial Stadium for our game against Oldham Athletic, then we hope you will pick up a matchday programme.

In this issue manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes and we carry interviews with Ellis Harrison and Tom Lockyer.

Our centre spread is given over to a poster of Joe Lumley, ideal for the younger members of the family to get signed as a keepsake.

In this issue we look back to our game against The Latics in February 2011, a game that saw Rovers win 1-0 thanks to a Rene Howe goal.

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 April over the course of those 20 years.

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 three match reports from recent games, news of our U-15 and U-16 sides and a profile of second year scholar Dan Lammiman.

Check out our Fanzone pages, where we celebrate birthdays, remember former fans and bring you news of some of the fundraising efforts of some of our supporters

In this issue we bring you an exclusive interview with our Sports Therapist Luke Almond, who will be running the London Marathon later this month and news from Bristol Hospital Broadcasting Service, and their new benefactor.

Our ‘Famous Against The Gas’ series of photos features current Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, who has appeared at The Mem as a player, for Swansea and Chester, and also as Swansea’s manager.

And there’s more! 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 Monday. 

Priced at only £3.00 it really is a bargain!

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