THERE'S an exclusive interview with Asmir Begovic inside Saturday’s Matchday Magazine . . . in which the highly rated stopper speaks of his pride at holding the number one jersey at the Britannia Stadium.
The 25-year-old sat down with our award winning publication in the build up to this weekend’s clash against the Black Cats, and spoke at length about his future, his aims for the season, and the rapid progression of the Football Club.
Begovic is one of a number of City stars from both past and present to speak to the Magazine, with boss Tony Pulis, Chief Executive Tony Scholes and skipper Ryan Shawcross delivering their regular pre-match pieces, whilst we also catch up with Rory Delap in our popular ‘Getting To Know’ feature.
Official Club photographer Phil Greig brings you the best of his snaps from the past few weeks, including photos from the successful Stoke Kitchen event, which was won by England striker Michael Owen.
Fan-favourite Mickey Thomas talks all things football in his column, and recalls last weekend’s encounter against another of his former sides Manchester United, as well as giving us his thoughts on the upcoming match against Martin O’Neill’s side.
There is also a full round up of the Academy's latest exploits in the Under 21 and Under 18 leagues, whilst Head of Education and Welfare Greg Briggs speaks about his role at the Club in a two-page interview.
The 100-page perfect bound publication also includes the latest instalment of Simon Lowe’s superb historical look back at the Football Club, in what is our 150th campaign, whilst if you flip the magazine over then you can digest an emphatic 3-0 win against Sunderland from the 70s.
In our special history section we take a look at the Matchday Magazine from the encounter back in 1976, before reliving all of the drama that unfolded during the encounter at the Victoria Ground.
To round off the section we recall which players and teams were lifting all the silverware come May in our ‘The Season That Was’ feature.
As well as all of this we also have the Potters Puzzler, giving you the chance to display your knowledge on all things football, youngsters can enjoy our ‘Junior Potters’ spread, whilst the news section gives you all the latest from both the Britannia Stadium and Clayton Wood Training Ground.
What’s more, all of this is priced at just £3.50, so make sure you pick up yourself a copy prior to kick-off from either the Britannia Stadium Club Shop or one of the official programme sellers situated around the stadium.
