Our matchday programme, The Pirate, now consists of 88 pages and costs only £3.00.
This season’s issue is packed full of news and views from an eclectic mix of contributors, all writing about Bristol Rovers and those articles sit side by side with a wide range of articles on club matters.
In Saturday’s programme, for our game against AFC Wimbledon, manager Darrell Clarke pens his own article, and we have three match reports from our U-18 side and a selection of photos from their first round FA Youth Cup tie. In addition, we feature the U-10 lads from our Academy who will be introduced to the crowd at half time on Saturday.
Our programme cover commemorates the fact that we are holding our own short Remembrance Service ahead of kick off against The Dons.
Don’t forget our extensive historical section, either, as this week we take a look back at November 2003 when Ray Graydon’s side exited the FA Cup at the first round stage against AFC Bournemouth. Also catch Stephen Byrne’s Rovers’ Miscellany, an article in which he looks at the youngest players to appear for and against The Gas.
In addition we carry interviews with Tom Broadbent and Ellis Harrison, while it’s Liam Sercombe’s turn to be the dressing room DJ in this week’s edition of Pirate Sounds, brought to you by Lance Cook.
The Pirate is available from the club shop and sellers around the stadium and still only £3.00; why not purchase a copy this weekend and see what you think?
