Match: York City

Published: 4/9/2017

 

I phoned Southport prior to the match to arrange 2 wheelchair spaces plus a car parking space.

Unfortunately they don’t have any parking spaces so we had to drive around looking for somewhere to park.

There was no segregation at the match, so we sat infront of our own supporters .   I found a chair and carried it to where the wheelchairs were,   there were 5 from York.

The refreshment counter was too high for people in wheelchairs to reach, so I went with them to help pay and reach items bought.

The disabled toilets were just inside the entrance but everyone was using them.

There were both program sellers inside and outside the ground,   but the club shop had a step up so wheelchairs couldn’t enter.

The stewards and staff were really helpful and kept checking to make sure we were ok, and they couldn’t do enough for us.
