    We ordered a ticket and a car parking space by phone from Newport.

    Arriving at the ground I asked a steward where we entered and he showed me to a gate close to where we parked.

    Entering the ground the steward asked for our tickets, said I wasn’t sure where to collect them. But he took us into the ground at the home end & walked us through the back of the stand to the away end, then he collected our tickets for us, scanned them and gave them back to me.

    The home end has a new raised platform for wheelchairs but we chose to sit with our own fans, as they haven’t started building a wheelchair platform for the away supporters a steward asked if we would like to sit in the main stand with our supporters. He then removed a barrier and helped my son onto an end seat on the front row.

    Good view of all the pitch and no one walked in front of us.

    A program seller was close by inside the ground, and a alcohol bar & disabled toilet was just behind the stand. But a burger van was parked close to us, food there was expensive and they didn’t sell pies, though home fans could get them and pasties from their refreshment place. You aren’t allowed to take any food or drinks into the ground, you are forced to buy theirs.

    The stewards were excellent and made sure we were ok all the time & to ask them if we needed anything.

    After the game, the steward escorted us through the back of the stand again to the home end and exit where the car was parked.

    First class stewarding and a good day out.

    We drove to the game and we parked very close to the stadium. I was allowed 2 free carer tickets because i have to have two carers. Inside the ground stewards were very friendly and I could sit with my own supporters. Great for me.

    where do I start, disabled people are definately 2nd class at Newport, portsmouth arranged to park nearby, pick up disabled and drop near ground. The police had other ideas and this was all stopped, myself and one other travelled in police cars to the ground however were told we had to make our own way back. The seating area for disabled is target practice for the newport team whilst warming up and is very scary, sitting in a bus shelter type building with glass panels missing out of the roof, the practice goal area is right in the front. The stewards stood in front most of the game dispite being asked to move. The area leading up to the shelter is very uneven and almost impossible to push a wheelchair, trying to get to the toilets and the food/drink stall is impossible all in all terrible ground. I ALSO WAS ASKED TO SHAKE MY CRUTCHES AT SECURITY??

    Having travelled up on the PAFC away coach. The coaches were not be able to park near the ground. I had to walk in appalling weather for 15 minutes to the ground. Many who travel up on the coach are elderly and have disabilities. Many struggled in the walk to the ground. Having been wet through to the skin and then having to walk again back to the coachgetting even wetter we then had a journey home many in wet clothes. Thee seem to be lack of any planning for the away coaches to get close to the ground. We were treated appalling. The catering was poor with long queues to get hot food and drink.Those supporters who had no cover in the standswere drenched. Poor facilities for away fans.
