Match: Guiseley v York City

Published: 6/10/2016

 

This local derby was all ticket for away supporters,  so we bought our ticket from York,   they only received 2 wheelchair & carer tickets,  but actually 3 turned up.

 

I phoned Guiseley the week prior to the match to reserve a wheelchair car parking space  and was told one would be kept for us.

We had a pre match meal at the Hare & Hounds pub, Menston, (Fayre & Square)

 

Arriving at the ground, the car park was full except for a few spaces with cones across,   One was a disabled space and there were no stewards in sight, so I cheekily removed the cones for us to park, although I felt guilty at doing so.

 

We walked up the lane toward the away turnstiles. Which were accessible by a step.  I went and found a steward who told us to go back up the lane and a gate would be opened for us to enter.  The stewards there wouldn’t let us in, and one took us around the ground to another gate at the far corner,  we went in and our tickets were checked but not returned so I asked for them back. Another steward took us halfway round the pitch to where the away supporters were.

 

2 seats had been reserved for us, on the front row of the stand, but Dave was told we could stay in a void area between the stands of away & home supporters if he preferred,  He did and I sat in one of our reserved seats but the top bar of the fence was at my eye level so I went & stood with the wheelchairs,   all 3 disabled people decided to stay in the void & the carers stood with them.   A  better view there of the whole pitch.

 

The refreshment bar was accessible but the toilets at both ends of the ground were up a big step.   No disabled ones.   Programme sellers were both outside & inside the ground.   There was no club shop and the stewards didn’t seem to know where anything was when asked.

 

We had a floodlight failure in the first half which lasted an hour,   and no emergency lights came on.  I dreaded to think of us getting out in the darkness if the match had been abandoned.
