Our matchday programme, The Pirate, underwent a major overhaul in the summer and we are pleased to announce that every league issue will consist of 88 pages and still cost just £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 MK Dons, manager Darrell Clarke pens his own article, and we have two match reports from our U-18 side and more reports on our Development Squad, while Josh Bailey is the subject of our Academy profile.
Our front cover and our centre spread are given over to Geoff Dunford, our former Chairman, who passed away last Saturday and there are many tributes contained in the pages of tomorrow’s issue.
Don’t forget our extensive historical section, either, as this week we take a look back at October 1998 and this an extensive historical section where we look back at this month in 1984, when Ian Holloway’s side were collecting red cards for fun!
In addition, we carry interviews with Joe Partington and Chris Lines, while it’s Billy Bodin’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?
