If you are coming to The Memorial Stadium for our game against Scunthorpe United, 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 Peter Hartley, Cristian Montano and Tom Lockyer.

Our centre spread is given over to a poster of Luke James, 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 Iron in August 2013, a game that ended in a goalless draw.

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 February 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 reports regarding our U-10 and U-12 sides as well as a profile of first-year scholar Matt Swan. 

Check out our Fanzone pages, where we celebrate birthdays, remember former fans and bring you news of some special visitors we have had in the last few weeks.

The Name’s the Same, an article by Stephen Byrne, looks at two players by the name of Williams, Gavin and Thomas in this instance, though you might have trouble placing the latter as he last played for The Gas in 1926!

Our ‘Famous Against The Gas’ series of photos features current Liverpool and England international Adam Lallana pictured in action against Rovers in 2010, when he was with Southampton.

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 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 from sellers around the ground, don’t forget to buy yours!

Unable to make it to tomorrow's game? You can still pick up your copy of our programme from our online shop by clicking here.
