CategoryScore Comments
First Impressions of the stadium, parking, ease of entry. 7Compact ground in a housing estate, the coach had to do a three point turn in quite a tight space but was parked right by our turnstile.
Food & Drink, range, quality, price. 8Coley’s. Its to die for. I covert my oppononents facilities. Good range of beers, excellent pricing and service with a smile. Food was only served from behind the stand, good quality pies at a great price.
View from your seat, any poles in the way, obstructed view, seat broken? 7Sat on the halfway line decent view, seat a little tight as was legroom. No obstructions, not allowed behind the goal this time.
Home team support, was it a library, good banter between the fans? 8Stanley Ultras made some noise, not a great deal of banter exchanged less than 2000 in the crowd.
What were the stewards like, helpful and friendly or jobsworths? 7Decent set of stewards coming in and by the concessions, a gaggle of them definitely had that metal barrier fully secured.
Toilet facilities, clean and well equipped with hot water, disgusting. 7Yes, nice and clean handdryers worked
Ticket pricing, did the price reflect the facilities of the ground? 8Facilities were good, clean and tidy. Good shout at the price. Nice place to visit for league football.
Ground facilities, half time service, did they let fans outside at halftime? 8Service was good and efficient. Fans didnt need to be let out a smoking area was in part of the large area designated for away fans.
Match atmosphere, did the Dons fans give good support? 7The Dons were boosted by a new head coach’s first game, the fans fully back the team and they saw the first go at restoring MK Way
Ease of exit, did the carpark clear quickly, traffic around the stadium? 8Coach right by the exit we got out quick with under 2000 at the game. Good journey home.
