Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s League One fixture against Doncaster 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.
Our new-look programme starts with a front cover image of manager Brian Barry-Murphy, who did so well to steer the team away from relegation at the end of last season.
BBM brings us his thoughts on pre-season and looks ahead to the game against Doncaster and the campaign as a whole.
After that the programme is packed with new features, including:
MY TEAM-MATES – a Dale player spills the beans on the Dale squad;
THINK OF A NUMBER – looking at facts, figures and connections between Dale and Doncaster;
COLOURFUL MEMORIES – three previous games between Dale and Doncaster are reviewed from the perspective of the kits worn;
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO? – a wistful feature looking at things that have disappeared from the game;
BACK OF THE NET – a whole-season article focusing on the exploits of Dale’s top 25 goalscorers of all-time.
We have a completely new-look visitors’ section, as well as the usual League One round-up and opinion columns.
Most contributors have returned for another season, while our regular historical pages – ‘On This Day’ and ‘Through The Years’ – have had a makeover and an extension that will help readers to jog their Dale memory banks.
Action photos appear from the games against Huddersfield and Oldham, while we also have a couple of informative one-off articles to set fans up for the new season.
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.
