Match: Gateshead v York

Published: 22/8/2016

 

There were no pre sales of tickets,  it was on a first come first served basis, same for car park,   which isn’t very satisfactory if you’ve had to travel and can’t get in to see the match. So we set off extra early taking time off work for a Tuesday night match.

Arriving at the ground we found the car park & disabled spaces easily, though not many spaces were left.

Not sure where to go, we entered the main building where all the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.

Programmes and the shop were in the main building as was the bar, food available, and plenty of seating around tables.

I asked a gentleman where to go with a wheelchair and he sent me upstairs (lift available)  to see Catherine.

Catherine took me into the disabled viewing area for the home supporters on a balcony but uncovered, (good job it didn’t rain)   We also had the option of going opposite, in the stand for away supporters, where we could have watched on a pathway above the seats with our own supporters.

I went outside to buy our tickets from a turnstile as advised and then took the tickets back inside & we went up in the lift to the home disabled area.  I’m glad we chose to sit there as a lot of the away fans stood up on the pathway so we probably wouldn’t have been able to see much.

We had an excellent view and the staff were very helpful asking us to let them know if we needed anything.

There were toilets just along the balcony including a disabled one.

An excellent ground to visit but need to get there early
