£3 Per Pirate

October 17, 2014

Our matchday programme, ‘The Pirate’, for the game against Forest Green Rovers, contains all the usual news and views and costs just £3.

(Not this programme from 44 years ago. ONE SHILLING?)

It’s packed with many features you won’t have seen on our website. Manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes, and this week we continue our feature that profiles the scholars in our Academy.

In this issue it’s the turn of first year scholar George Corp. Matty Taylor and Stuart Sinclair are interviewed for this issue, so check out what Matty has to say about his recent successes from the penalty spot and what he thinks about next week’s FA Cup tie.

Then see what ‘Sincs’ has to say about the possibility of lining up against his brother, and how he would feel without his beard!

The featured player in this issue’s centre spread is on loan striker Adam Cunnington, who endures quite a lengthy commute to and from training.

(Nor this programme from some time earlier. Is that 5 pence? How much is that in euros, then?)

There’s news from the Supporters Club, Young Pirates, and Helpline, while the Fanzone page gives all of you an opportunity to participate, so if you have a birthday or anniversary or anything else you would like us to mention in the next issue, then please get in touch.

Are you related to a Rovers player from the Victorian era? If so, check out Stephen Byrne’s Victorian Rovers article and get in touch if you have any photos of players from over a century ago.

As well as the Victorian Rovers feature, the history pages feature season 1985/86 and also looks at programmes from that season as well as a look at what we were listening to back then. In addition, you can discover what football supporters were reading back in 1972 and fast forward to season 1994/95 as Rovers went on a journey that would eventually lead to Wembley.

Don’t forget the Chairman’s notes, either, as tells us how pleased he is that local TV stations will once again be showing highlights of Rovers matches.

There’s an eclectic mix of articles from a wide range of contributors, all of them Rovers supporters, so if you haven’t previously purchased a matchday programme when you’ve come to a game, try it tomorrow – you might be pleasantly surprised!

Cant make it to the game tomorrow but still want to read the programme? Never fear because you can order a copy.
