Further information is available courtesy of the Yeovil Town Disabled Supporters Association’s Disabled Information and Facilities Brief, which offers more details on the match-day experience for all sets of Aldershot Town fans:
Arriving and departing Yeovil by train
The stadium is 3.4 miles out of Yeovil Town Centre and 5.1 miles from the train station, therefore, if you are arriving by train, we suggest that you book a taxi from the station and back to the station after the game, before your day of travel. This is because there is no guarantee that there will be a taxi at the station on your arrival plus no taxis are available outside the stadium after the game, unless pre-booked. Like most football grounds, getting away after the game can be a nightmare; therefore, we suggest that you book your return train travel time out of Yeovil, at least 1 hour & 30 minutes after the end of the game.
There is good parking onsite and easy access. Accessible parking bays are reserved for members of YTFC Disabled Supporters Association, who are allocated accessible bays behind the Main Stand (Gate A) and against the back of the Screwfix Stand (Gate B), after they have purchased a season parking permit. There are also a number of accessible bays at the top of the slope behind the Screwfix Stand, which are reserved for away disabled supporters (via Gate B) plus some on a first come first served basis. The drivers of ALL non-season parking permit holder cars will be charged £3 per match by the club, as they enter the stadium grounds. For help, look out for the DSA stewards in a red, white & grey hooped tabard. Any other Blue Badge holders, both home and away, are advised to contact Sharon Swain on 07790 375250, prior to the day of the match, for accessible parking bay availability. Access to the stadium is generally flat from the reserved accessible parking spaces behind the Main Stand but on a slope from the reserved & unreserved accessible parking spaces behind the Screwfix Stand.
Disabled Fan Segregation
There is segregation: Away disabled supporters sit in the away end with the away supporters.
Wheelchair users are accommodated in 4 sets of bays set into the front of the Screwfix Stand at pitch level, all bays having room for around 5 wheelchairs. There is no provision for companions or assistants to sit alongside the wheelchair user but there is a companion’s row directly behind the bays. One companion with any disabled person using a wheelchair receives their admission to the ground free of charge. Visiting Disabled supporters are accommodated at the away end side of the Screwfix Stand and have 5 wheelchair places. We also provide 6 waterproof wheelchair covers and blankets for use during the match. For help, look out for and ask a Steward.
We have three adult & one child’s wheelchairs, plus 16 waterproof blankets and 6 waterproof wheelchair covers, available for free hire whilst at the match. Supporters wishing to use the wheelchair, blanket & waterproof wheelchair covers service are advised to contact the nearest Steward on arrival at the match and then return the equipment to the nearest Steward, after the match.

Until we find replacement commentators, we have 6 DAB radios & headsets to assist you in following the matchday commentary on BBC Radio Somerset, on 1566 kHz. Please ask a steward for a kit, if you require one and then return it to a steward after the match.

Supporters requiring access to designated areas are advised to purchase tickets in advance if they do not hold a season ticket. For all the latest ticket information, please ring the Ticket Office or visit the club official Website.
The Club Shop, Bars and Other Facilities
The club shop is situated underneath the Main Stand opposite the Screwfix Stand and is only accessible via a small step. Beware of the camber of the ground outside the Main Stand; it tends to vary a bit.
The club’s bars and conference facilities are all situated on the first floor of the Main Stand and are accessible via a purpose-built lift situated next to the Green & White Supporters Club shop, at the far end of the stand.
The club have a temporary Marquee bar on the far side of the all-weather pitch at Huish Park, opposite the corner of the Main Stand and the Thatchers Terrace. The Marquee is wheelchair accessible and away supporters are catered for before the match but not after the match. Some visiting club supporters are excluded upon advice from the police. Otherwise for the thirsty disabled supporters the nearest pubs to the ground are The Arrow, The Airfield Tavern and The Bell, they are all around a quarter-of a mile from Huish Park. Happily, they are all wheelchair-friendly.
