Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Tuesday’s League One fixture against Wigan Athletic.
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 defender Harrison McGahey, who has been a consistent performer at the back for Dale this term.
There is a centre spread poster of Harrison for our younger supporters to collect, as well as a look at how his personal likes compare to those of another Dale defender from the 1980s in our ‘Decades Apart’ feature.
In our comprehensive visitors’ section, contributors David Chaffey and Dean Smith each bring us a different aspect of Wigan’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 the thorny subject of racism in sport, while Scrutator is a rueful article that was actually written five months ago!
‘Kit Cupboard’ reflects on what was being worn in League One in 2011/12 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 Richard Wild tells readers all about his favourite 4-0 away win.
Action photos appear from the games against Walsall and Rotherham, while a special two-page Traveller’s Tales reports on the trip to Wembley to face Tottenham.
Visitors Wigan Athletic 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.
