Rochdale AFC’s matchday programme – The Voice of Spotland – is back for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture against Walsall.
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.
TVOS starts with a front cover image of George Broadbent, who has spent the season on loan at the Crown Oil Arena from Sheffield United.
Manager Robbie Stockdale reflects on recent home games and discusses having a rare midweek without a match, while Countdown to Kick-Off looks at the increase to five substitutes adopted by Premier League clubs.
After that we have a host of features, including:
SHIRT NUMBERS, HEAVEN & HELL – A feature looking at players who wore shirt numbers that didn’t suit their position in 2014/15
ON THIS DAY – What were Dale doing in the past on 9th April?
100 YEARS IN THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE – The next instalment of the series looking back at Dale’s debut Football League campaign in 1921/22
COVER STAR – Looking at when former Dale goalkeeper Martin Hodge was featured on the cover of a Sheffield Wednesday programme
We also have our regular League Two round-up and opinion pages from Brian Quigley and Scrutator, while Charlotte and Isabelle continue to bring us the female perspective in The Dale Way.
Action photos appear from the games against Barrow and Salford City, while the Commercial and Sponsorship departments at the club update readers with their latest news and initiatives.
Abraham Odoh reveals who is the best opponent he has faced and we have our regular historical pages looking at Dale’s results in this week in the past.
Walsall aren’t left out and get plenty of coverage, including a round-up of their current form, player profiles and historical connections between Dale and The Saddlers.
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.
