Match: Blyth Spartans v York City

Published: 10/8/2017

 

I phoned Blyth over a week before our visit but they were unsure if they could accommodate 2 wheelchairs,

but he would ring me the following day

 

He did ring, and said there were 2 spaces for us and a parking space.

 

The Tyne tunnel was free for disabled drivers,  and we had a pre match meal at the WallsEnd, a hungry horse pub.

 

Arriving at the ground we went to the wrong entrance but were directed to the other one and was told they were expecting us.

 

Arriving there, the gate was opened and we were told where to park,  right next to the turnstiles and the club house.

 

It was pouring down,  I asked where the wheelchair people went and was shown to a covered area up a ramp, there was already a man in there with a walking frame from Blyth and he was very friendly although he stood up the whole match leaning against the front which wasn’t good for the other disabled. Another man from York came in a wheelchair, and the area was full, it holds 4 wheelchairs with the carers standing behind. Although there was a chair and 2 stools, the carers had to stand to see, although we couldn’t see the whole pitch.

 

The disabled toilet was immediately behind us and the refreshment bar at the side of us, both accessible.

 

Programmes were sold by the entrance.

 

All the staff and fans from Blyth were very friendly and there was no segregation, which we all prefer.
