Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Tuesday’s League One fixture against Doncaster Rovers.
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 defender Jim McNulty, who is currently in his third season at the Crown Oil Arena.
There is a centre spread poster of Jim for our younger supporters to collect, as well as a look at how his personal likes compare to those of a Dale defender from the past in our new ‘Decades Apart’ feature.
In our completely new-look visitors section, contributors Steve Ashworth, David Chaffey and Dean Smith each bringing us a different aspect of Doncaster’s past and present, which is in addition to the usual statistical round-up of the teams’ meetings down the years.
Bray-based supporter Brian Quigley tells us about his collecting preference, while John Rowe analyses a favourite topic in English football – penalties!
We have an interview with a Rovers’ fan conducted by Toby Wright, as well as a quiz page and a puzzle page that can be attempted by supporters 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 and Scrutator reflects on notable incidents when Dale have previously faced Doncaster.
Action photos appear from the games against Scunthorpe and Shrewsbury, while Traveller’s Tales reports on the Carabao Cup trip to Mansfield.
Visitors Doncaster Rovers 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 Tuesday’s The Voice of Spotland, on sale in the Club Shop and around the ground, priced £3.00.
