Match: Wrexham V York City 29/08/2016

I Phoned Wrexham prior to the match & booked a wheelchair space with a carer, I paid for these and was told to collect them from the club shop.

 

There were no parking spaces available but I was told we could park at the University next door.

We had  a pre match meal at the “Squire Yorke”   a Fayre & Square pub.

 

Arriving at  the ground and parking, I went to the club shop to collect our tickets,  this was wheelchair friendly and I bought programmes in there too.

 

I wasn’t sure where we went into the ground so I asked a very helpful steward who didn’t know but went to find out.

He said if David could get out of his wheelchair and into a seat. We could sit in the lower tier below our own fans, as there wasn’t space for a wheelchair. He declined this so was told to go to the opposite side of the ground and enter through a gate with the home fans.

 

On entering a steward scanned our tickets and told us where the disabled toilets were and the refreshment bar and said another steward at pitchside would show us where to sit.  There wasn’t a steward there but I asked a Wrexham staff member and he called a steward over.    We sat at pitchside with the Wrexham wheelchair fans and carers who were very friendly.  I asked another carer about the fabulous wheelchair platform I had read about. She pointed it out but it didn’t look much.  She said it only held about 6 wheelchairs and as they had a lot more than 6 wheelchair fans, they had to take it in turns to sit up there.  Just before kick off a steward asked us if we would like to sit up there as someone hadn’t turned up.   David declined this as it was a nice sunny day and we had a good view from where we were.  Had the weather been wet, we  might have taken up his offer as at pitchside we would have got very wet.

 

A nice friendly club and a good day out, and we even got a free team sheet.

Letter from Kerry Evans to Wrexham FC CEO Don Bircham

 

Dear Mr Bircham,

 

I am a Disabled season ticket holder at Wrexham FC .

 

I felt the need to put pen to paper and write this letter, after watching a matche on the new disabled platform's viewing area. I was absolutely blown away by the view as soon as we stepped onto the platform, it really is incredible. 


I cannot put into words how outstanding the viewing experience for disabled fans now is at your club and Wrexham FC and The Disabled Supporters Association should be highly applauded for their efforts.

 

As a disabled lady who is paralysed I feel the cold more than most and when the weather was very bad on some occasions last year we were unable to attend matches as, sitting on the front row would have been far too cold and wet but now disabled supporters have the option to attend the matches even on bad weather days and stay warm and dry.

 

People mainly only write a letter when they want to complain about something and I'm a great believer that if something deserves praise then you should write to tell people, and I really did feel the need to write this letter. 


I felt enormously humbled sitting there that people have gone to such enormous lengths to do this for disabled fans. As a disabled person I am far more used to facilities not being in place to accommodate me in all sorts of venues and visits to places not being possible because of my chair, so to have this wonderful treatment really is out of this world.

 

I'm sure I'm speaking on behalf of every disabled fan at Wrexham Football Club by saying we are absolutely delighted with the efforts you have gone to and very much appreciate how you have made disabled fans so welcome at your club, and I for one am proud to be a season ticket holder at Wrexham Football Club.

 

I wish you every success in raising the money for further platforms.

 

Many thanks,

Kerry Evans
