£2 Pirate

December 13, 2014

Our matchday programme,‘The Pirate’, for the FA Trophy tie against Bath City will consist of 32 pages with a cover price of £2.

(The reduction in price to £2 is not quite as good as the 5p programme in the Eastville days.)

Almost, but not quite, advert free, this issue is packed with a number of features you won’t have seen on our website.

Manager Darrell Clarke pens his own notes, and this week we look back at three games against Bath City and hope it’s third time lucky as two of the previous games featured saw Rovers visit Wembley at the end of the season!

There are news articles from the Supporters Club, Young Pirates, and Helpline. In our History section Stephen Byrne looks back to look at Rovers players from the Victorian era. If you are able to add anything, by way of information or photos to illustrate these articles, please contact Keith Brookman.

Mike Jay looks at two players who played just one game for Rovers but went on to enjoy long careers with Bath City, namely Tony Gough and Dave Palmer, while we also cast an eye over the programme from the 1994 FA Cup tie between the sides.

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 today – you might be pleasantly surprised!


(This is the programme from our only ever competitive match against The Romans.)
