    Been to Bolton lots of times, always looked after very well. Wheelchair users are behind the goal at pitch level, got to keep your wits about you when teams are warming up and throughout the game as we are sitting ducks for the ball. The one and only toilet is on a slope hard to get in if you have a manual wheelchair, the toilet is a disgrace, mucky and cobwebs, looks like it’s not been cleaned, painted in years, no handtowels either that was before the game.

    Yesterday I attended the Macron stadium with my parents to watch Middlesborough away at Bolton, I am a wheelchair user, but our original seats meant I would have to leave my wheelchair at the bottom of the south stand and climb up the steps to get to my seat. However a female steward at the south stand let me stay in my wheelchair at the bottom of the stand with my parents.

    This meant I had a great view of the game, especially in the second half when Middlesborough scored two goals, had I stayed in my original seat.I would not have be able to see the goals as I am a small person and the away fans would have been standing up.

    I would like to say thank you to the stewards at the stadium for being accommodating and letting me stay in my wheelchair.
