Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Oldham Athletic.
The programme took a break during the behind closed doors 2020/21 campaign, but has returned this season with 76 jam-packed pages to keep readers completely informed and entertained.
The new-look TVOS starts with a front cover image of Dale wing-back Corey O’Keeffe, who has become a firm fans’ favourite since joining us on loan from Mansfield Town in the summer.
Manager Robbie Stockdale reviews the games at Mansfield and Burnley, while Spotland Scene brings readers Dale news items they may have missed.
After that we have a host of features, including:
SHIRT NUMBERS, HEAVEN & HELL – A feature looking at players who did and some who didn’t look right in shirt number 6.
COVER STAR – Looking at when a former Dale player appeared on the front cover of another club’s programme. This time it’s Nicky Adams.
WE’VE GOT HISTORY – A detailed look at the 60 previous meetings between Dale and Oldham Athletic.
NOT HIM AGAIN – Which players have played and scored most often in this fixture?
ON THIS DAY – What were Dale doing in the past on 25th September?
100 YEARS IN THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE – Part 3 of a comprehensive feature looking back at Dale’s debut season in the Football League 100 years ago.
We have our regular League Two round-up and opinion columns from John Rowe, Brian Quigley and, of course, Scrutator.
Action photos appear from the games against Northampton and Shrewsbury, while Ryan Bradley and Siobhan McElhinney bring readers their news from the Rochdale AFC Community Trust.
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.
* The programme had been signed off when news came through of the sad passing of David Kilpatrick. A full tribute will appear in the Crawley issue on 9th October.
