Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s League One fixture against Bradford City.
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 midfielder Mark Kitching, who returned to the starting eleven in last weekend’s game at Peterborough.
There is a centre spread poster of Ian for our younger supporters to collect, as well as a look at how his personal likes compare to those of another Dale midfielder from the 1990s in our ‘Decades Apart’ feature.
In our comprehensive visitors’ section, contributors David Chaffey and Dean Smith each bring us a different aspect of Bradford’s current form and news, which is in addition to the usual statistical round-up of the teams’ meetings down the years.
John Rowe looks at footballers who also played cricket, while Scrutator tells us why a Bradford acquaintance always enjoys games against Dale.
‘Kit Cupboard’ reflects on what was being worn in League Two in 2013/14 and our usual quiz and puzzle pages, that can be attempted by supporters of both clubs, appear once more.
Regular historical features – ‘On This Day’ and ‘Through The Years’ – continue to look at games and events from Dale’s past and Boss Hog tells readers all about one of his favourite away wins.
Action photos appear from the games against AFC Wimbledon, Fleetwood and Scunthorpe, while Traveller’s Tales reports on that trip to Glanford Park.
Visitors Bradford City 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.
