Yeovil Town v York City 2nd January 2016 

Prior to match I phoned to reserve a car parking space.

Arriving at the ground we drove into the car park but it was the wrong one so we turned round and went further along to the Green Gate car park, where we told the steward our name & he gave us a ticket for the £2 charge.


Another steward directed us to a parking space. A lady approached us, who was the DLA and we were asked if we had a car park badge, we showed her our ticket which she took off us and refunded our money & gave us a different ticket. She introduced herself as the DLA, sorry I can't remember her name but she was really helpful.


Programs were on sale inside and outside the ground. Entering the ground we were shown to a wheelchair shelter, pitch side. In front of our own fans, which was fully covered, pleased about that as it rained. A steward came and said if there was anything we needed, just had to ask & they had blankets available if we felt cold.


The refreshment bar was underneath the stand behind us and easily reachable. Exiting the ground after the match, stewards were still on car park duty and held the other cars back so we were able to join the queue to get away. This rarely happens at most grounds we have been to.


An excellent ground for the disabled to visit and friendly helpful stewards

Yeovil Town v Bristol Rovers  - 15 Aug 2015

Hello, may I express my thanks for your kindness in forwarding a disabled parking permit for the match last Saturday. 

I appreciate the consideration and welcome shown to me and my family as Bristol Rovers supporters. May I take the opportunity of wishing Yeovil Town a successful season (sorry not when you play the return match against Rovers).

Once again thank you.

I am the Secretary of Luton Town’s recently formed Disabled Supporters Association.  

We are privileged to be at your stadium for our away game on 22nd August 2015. I am writing to request some information about your facilities for LTFC disabled supporters so that we can put this information up for Luton Fans with a disability who wish to attend the match. 

I have answered most of the questions below based on information from your DSA website, but would greatly value some additional information. I would like to congratulate you on the amount of information already available on your DSA website.

 Yeovil Town v Middlesbrough F C - 03 May 2014

On behalf of myself, MDSA and I'm certain, my fellow Boro fans, I'd just like to extend thanks and appreciation to all the staff @ YTFC for all the help, assistance and generally "being there" for us and making our recent visit a memorable one. 

We are all very disappointed that we won't be playing there next season, but hope to see you return to the Championship at the first attempt! 

With very best wishes,

Paddy Cronesberry,
Chair,
Middlesbrough Disabled Supporters Association

 Yeovil Town v Reading FC - 31st August 2013

We are Reading F C supporters who travelled up from Reading on Sat 31/8 to see our team take on Yeovil Town F C in the Championship.

We just wanted to thank you and all your staff at the ground for making our visit very special, as from the moment that I rang to arrange special parking for myself and my wife, as I am a Blue Badge holder, to leaving the ground, no one could have been more helpful.  So we want you to know that you should all be very proud of your club and the staff and the general way your club is run.

Your team and club are a credit to the Championship and we are sure you will be fine, because against Reading you were by far the better team and definitely deserved nothing less than a draw . Considering the money we have spent on players and their so called quality, we agree on that showing, as Gary your manager said on the radio, that he would not swap any of his players for any of ours. 

So good luck this season and please pass these thoughts on to all your staff and hope to see you again next season, unless a miracle happens for us. We hope that you enjoy your experience to Reading F C as much as we have to you.

Kind Regards again,

Chris and Tracy Goodchild

 Yeovil v Sheffield United - 6th May 2013 

A very friendly club, nothing too much trouble. Roger the DLO very helpful.  Level access, pitch side in small cabin like shelters which hold 5 wheelchairs. The carers sit on a row behind the cabin and do not get a very good view.  When we were there, home fans sat behind but were well behaved, not like at other clubs we have visited.   

The only disabled toilet is at the other end of the stand in the home area and not easy to access as it is crowded at half time with people queuing for refreshments. No alarm cord fitted in toilet. Quite a good view but get stewards and police walking in front of disabled area. Separate disabled car park and free if booked in advance.  Would definitely go again.

Yeovil v MK Dons - 29th January 2013 

We visited Huish Park as away fans travelling in our club’s wheelchair accessible minibus.  This was our second visit, but our first evening visit.   We noticed that at the 1st roundabout from the nearby dual carriageway there was no sign for the ground (straight across) and was surprised that from the second roundabout, up the hill to the ground, the traffic was in a very slow (and often non-moving) queue – didn’t recall this from our Saturday visit.  There is a large supermarket and other outlets on this road.

Good parking at the ground and our bus was shown to a space very near to our entrance, which is on the left at the back of the stadium as you approach it.   We were greeted by Roger, the Disabled Liaison Steward, who was very friendly. He knew all about the headset commentary that my visually impaired husband had requested and provided this for him with no problem.  My husband whilst appreciative of this service, did tell Roger at the end that it had been a very biased commentary and one that you would not have known was specifically to assist people with impaired sight.   Roger said that he would he give this feedback to those doing the commentary.

Provision for away wheelchair fans is in little “bus shelter” like constructions at pitch level in front of the away fans.   As I heard from others that your view is limited in these and I had visions of my husband hitting his head on them (the roof is low), we chose to sit outside them, if you are going to do this, you need good waterproofs!    

For me the biggest downside of Huish Park is locating the accessible toilet, not least because the stewards nearest us didn’t know where it was!   There is only one, which is at the opposite end of the stadium to the away end, at the back of the small crowded home supporter’s refreshment area, with the toilet door opening out straight onto where they everyone is trying to eat their hot dogs!  The cubicle is not over large, although the stewards were really helpful when I got my waterproof trapped in my wheels! 

We would happily visit Huish Park again.
