27 January 2021

How to grab your programme for this weekend as well as an update on our approach to the programme going forward...

This weekend's edition of 'The Pirate' features an interesting look at when the Rochdale once played in the Gas' kit.

Alongside that feature, we also have Chris Wathen's 'Doing the 92' series, Steve Smith's 'Sweet FA', some news from the Supporters Club and a look at our opposition in depth.

As usual, the programme will also feature notes from Paul Tisdale.

'The Pirate' is a staple of the matchday experience to many Gasheads, but as is often the case with many programmes up and down the country, sales are heavily dependent on footfall, something we have not had this season.

At the beginning of the campaign, the club made the decision to continue with the match-by-match production of 'The Pirate', hoping that fans would continue to order it to their door in similar numbers to those who would normally purchase on a matchday.

However, despite a reasonable uptake in our new delivery service, the numbers have not been strong enough for this approach to be viable for the remainder of the season, and the club has looked to adapt its approach.

To ensure 'The Pirate' continues, we will be changing approach over the coming games. Saturday’s programme will be a 32-page edition, with future games being covered by multi-game editions, stretching to either 96 pages or 80 pages, dependant on the number of games covered by each issue.

The first games covered in this new approach will be the Oxford, Swindon and Portsmouth fixtures.
