Match: Eastleigh v York City

Published: 18/11/2016

 

Our first visit to Eastleigh, I phoned them in advance & booked and paid for tickets and reserved a wheelchair parking space.

The tickets were left for us on turnstiles 10 or 11.

 

We had a meal at the Fleming Arms,  near to the ground.

 

Arriving at the ground we were directed to a disabled parking space close to the turnstiles,  but we walked almost round all 4 sides of the ground before we reached turnstiles 10 & 11 at the away end.

 

I asked for our tickets at the turnstile & before we had gone through, Dave in his wheelchair had already been taken in through a side gate.

 

The turnstiles also had a supply of badges and programmes.

 

We sat pitchside in front of our own fans but got very wet as it rained all afternoon.

 

The refreshment bar was wheelchair friendly but was very expensive. And I could see the club shop in the ground directly opposite us.

 

There were no disabled toilets but stewards did tell  us if we needed them they would take us round the ground into the social club at the far side. As the social club was close to where we had parked, Dave said he would go after the game, but there was no way in from the car park so he managed to wait until we called at the services on the M1 coming home.

 

After the match we decided that instead of going the whole way around the ground, we would go across the grass to where the car was parked. Bit muddy and boggy and I thought his wheelchair might get bogged down, but we managed OK.

 

Very helpful and friendly staff but not brilliant for wheelchair users.
