If you are coming to The Memorial Stadium for our game against Chesterfield, then we hope you will pick up a matchday programme which has a cover price of £3.00.

In this issue Manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes and we carry interviews with Daniel Leadbitter and Rory Gaffney.

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

In this issue, we look back to our game against Chesterfield in October 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 March 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 a report from an Under-18 game as well as details of our Academy’s Football at Home initiative, and a profile of second-year scholar Kieran Hodges. 

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 Walker, Richard and Robert in this instance, though you might have trouble placing the latter as he last played for The Gas in the 1912!

Our ‘Famous Against The Gas’ series of photos features to play in a testimonial match for Lee martin and included David Beckham and Paul Scholes in the lineup.

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 for one game only, 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!
