Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s League One fixture against Gillingham.
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.
We start with a front cover image of forward Steven Davies, who discusses his role in the side in his ‘Manager On The Pitch’ column.
There is a centre spread poster of Steven for our younger supporters to collect, as well as a look at how his personal likes compare to those of a Dale forward from the past in our ‘Decades Apart’ feature.
In our comprehensive visitors’ section, contributors Steve Ashworth, David Chaffey and Dean Smith each bringing us a different aspect of Gillingham’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 looks at ground-hoppers, while John Rowe puts the team’s current league struggles into some sort of perspective.
We have an interview with a Gills’ fan conducted by Toby Wright, as well as quiz and puzzle pages 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 gives his take on what happened when Cologne visited Arsenal last week.
Action photos appear from the games against Stoke and Bury, while Traveller’s Tales reports on the trip to Shrewsbury.
Visitors Gillingham 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.
