Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Tuesday’s Checkatrade Trophy tie against Stoke City U21.
The reduced 32-page programme covers both of Dale’s home games in Group C, with sections dedicated to Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers.
The Potters’ U21 squad is profiled and we look back at previous meetings between Dale and Stoke’s senior team in all four competitions.
We also have The Name Game, where readers are given clues to the identities of the 22 players who started a game between the clubs back in 1999.
Blackburn’s first team squad is also profiled in detail and we recall games between Dale and Rovers from down the years, as well as another Name Game feature.
We have action photos from the opening Checkatrade Trophy tie at Bury and a summary of previous Dale games and played on 3rd October and 7th November in On This Day.
Or regular Half-Time Quiz and Puzzle Page complete an issue that tests readers’ Dale knowledge as well as bringing them up-to-date with what to expect from our two home opponents.
All this and more will be in Tuesday’s edition of The Voice of Spotland, on sale for £2.00 in the Club Shop and around the ground.
