    I telephoned Halifax prior to the match to arrange a car parking space & a wheelchair space.

    Arriving at the ground we were directed to a disabled car parking space next to the turnstile. £3 charge.

    We never saw anyone selling programmes.

    I went to reception & paid for our ticket & told to get the lift to the 3rd floor.

    This took us to the disabled area which was a platform above the main stand seating.

    Excellent view. .

    I asked a steward where we could get a cup of tea & he told me to walk down the steps to pitchside, walk along the front & into the way out. It was pouring down so I didn’t bother.

    We didn’t see any disabled toilets but we didn’t need them so never bothered asking.

    After the match a steward stopped other cars exiting the car park so we could get way from the ground.

    A nice ground but the stewards could have been more helpful.
