The Voice Of Spotland pays tribute to our all-time leading goalscorer, Ian Henderson, in this edition.
Printed for the original date of our game against Stockport County, back in December, the official matchday programme has been almost ten years in the making.
We start with a front cover dedicated to Hendo, with four images from the night he broke the record against Salford City.
Several other articles throughout the programme look at the facts and statistics of his 130 goals, including which teams he has been most prolific against, his favourite away grounds, his favourite opposing goalkeeper and which Dale player provided most of the assists.
We also reveal all the different shirts Henderson was wearing when he scored and who comes out on top in a Top Trumps style game between him and the previous record holder, Reg Jenkins.
Also included is:
THROUGH THE YEARS – what were Dale doing at this time (December) 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 years ago?
BEYOND THE HEADLINE – looking in detail at an infamous December game against Stockport.
