The £2 Pirate

Mar 10, 2017 | News, Programme Notes

Why not buy The Pirate at the Southend United match on Saturday 11th March 2017?

It is being sold for just £2. This is not a misprint.

The last time you could buy the Bristol Rovers Match Programme for that price was 15 years ago.

The Southend United programme front cover from that era is shown below.

5,691 supporters at The Memorial Stadium saw Southend United win 1-0 at that fixture.

The Pirate front cover from 09/11/2002 featured a player who only played 4 league games for BRFC.

This player scored 8 times in 42 games for Southend United as a young player.

Can you identify the player featured?

He started in 5 games for Bristol Rovers which all ended in defeat.
