AK on external investment and training ground 🗣️ "The council have come up with a suggestion for a site in Heywood. We'll probably have a plan in place within the next 3-4 weeks. It's early stage but it's been a long haul trying to get land in Rochdale."

DB on groundstaff 🗣️ "Richard Blackburn [Head Groundsman] is held in extremely high regard by pitch contractors. We're digging down where it was in 1907 and all the drains ripped out, with new ones put in."

Graham Rawlinson on bars 🗣️ "There are two bars open after the game. The 1907 Lounge and Carlsberg Lounge. We can't open every bar for strategic running reasons, such as evening functions. When we believe there will be enough customers, we do open the bars."

DB on relationship with Rochdale Hornets 🗣️ "The relationship is probably at an all-time high. We wouldn't have been able to buy the stadium back if we imposed a huge rent on Hornets. They have helped the pitch enormously by moving games away from here like yesterday."

TP on Denehurst Park 🗣️ "It costs a lot to run the stadium and provide a pitch. There is consistently money going across to Denehurst Park and we are loaning them money to cover their expenditure. That is why we have consolidated the accounts."

DB on foul language in family areas 🗣️ "We want to work much harder in the Family Stand to create a family zone which families feel as though they can go in. We have noticed an increase in foul language and, sadly, racism. Families should feel safe coming here."
