Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Tuesday’s League One fixture against Bristol 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.
We start with a front cover image of midfielder Callum Camps, who made his 169th appearance for the club against Portsmouth on Saturday.
After that, the programme is packed with new features, including:
I WISH I’D GONE – an article looking at Dale games the author didn’t attend, but wished he had! This time it’s a Fourth Division game from September 1991.
WHAT DALE WORE IN – we pick a season and look at the different kits Dale sported throughout the campaign. In this issue, we look at the 19967/97 campaign.
NEW FOUND FAN – first-time season-ticket holder Steven Rittey brings us his views.
GOLDEN YEARS – Dale won promotion for the first time in 1968/69 and this series will recall that campaign game-by-game, with personal memories from fan Ian Goodwin.
We have a completely new-look visitors’ section, as well as the usual League One round-up from Jason Birch.
Many other past contributors continue to produce their excellent columns for the programme, with Scrutator discussing his trip to Sunderland and John Rowe paying tribute to Ian Henderson.
Meanwhile our regular historical pages – ‘On This Day’ and ‘Through The Years’ – have had a makeover, but will still help readers to jog their Dale memory banks.
Action photos appear from the games against Coventry and Bury, while Traveller’s Tales is back with a report on the trip to Fleetwood.
We also have one of our fantastic new caricatures in the centre spread – this time it’s Andy Cannon.
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.
