Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s League One fixture against Bury.
The programme is once again a 76-page issue this season, containing plenty of reading to keep fans entertained and informed before, during and after the match.
Our new-look programme starts with a front cover image of right-back Joe Rafferty, who signed a contract extension at the club over the summer.
There is a centre spread poster of ‘Raff’ for our younger supporters to collect, as well as a look at how his personal likes compare to those of a Dale full-back from the past in our new ‘Decades Apart’ feature.
We have a completely new-look visitors section, with contributors Steve Ashworth, David Chaffey and Dean Smith each bringing us a different aspect of Bury’s past and present.
Several other new contributors are still on board, including Bray-based supporter Brian Quigley, who brings us his views from across the Irish Sea.
We also have an interview with a fan of our visitors conducted by Dale fan Toby Wright, as well as a quiz page and a puzzle page that can be attempted by fans of both clubs.
Our regular historical features – ‘On This Day’ and ‘Through The Years’ – continue to look at games and events from Dale’s past, while the opinionated Scrutator and John Rowe bring us their views on current hot topics.
Action photos appear from the games against Barnsley and Morecambe, while Traveller’s Tales reports on the trip to Chorley.
Visitors Bury get nine pages of coverage, which includes a quiz-based article on a previous meeting between the clubs.
All this and much, much more will be in Saturday’s The Voice of Spotland, on sale in the Club Shop and around the ground, priced £3.00.
