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 defender Harrison McGahey, who has been ever-present for the first team this season.
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 game from September 1957!
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 1995/96 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.
WHEN I WAS A MASCOT – a mascot from the past tells us all about their day and what they have got up to since.
We have a completely new-look visitors’ section, as well as the usual League One round-up from Jason Birch.
Many other past contributors have returned for another season, including Scrutator, who writes about the trip to Scunthorpe last Saturday.
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 Fleetwood and Barnsley, while Traveller’s Tales is back with a report on the first match of the season at Burton.
We also have one of our fantastic new caricatures in the centre spread – this time it’s defender Jim McNulty.
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.
