Inside your matchday programme for the first home game of the season...

Don’t forget to pick up a copy of our new-look, pocked-sized programme, which is crammed full with some fantastic new features – on sale at Ewood Park this weekend.

Morten Gamst Pedersen selects some stand-out memories from his career in ‘Five of the Best’, Todd Kane answers your questions in ‘Tweet Talking’, Alan Judge talks about his Rovers return in ‘The Big Interview’ and goalkeeper Simon Eastwood shares his thoughts in ‘The Last Word’.

We profile Gary Bowyer’s most recent recruits – Tommy Spurr, Tom Cairney, Corry Evans and Yann Songo’o – and the Rovers boss looks ahead to today’s game in his regular Manager’s Column.

We round up the latest action from pre-season, the opening weekend of the Sky Bet Championship and the first round of the Capital One Cup, and have news and views from the Reserves, Academy and Ladies.

Kitman Pudsey Bevan returns to the matchday magazine after being signed up as our new Roving Reporter and in keeping with the Football League’s 125-year anniversary celebrations, there is a new nostalgia section dedicated to great games and players from the past.

We take an in-depth look at today’s visitors, Nottingham Forest, with a special focus on the manager, star man and key three.

There is a picture special from our Team Rovers Fun Day and a Fan’s Notice Board with some of your favourite summer snaps.

Priced at just £3, it all adds up to another great value read!
