Newport County
CategoryScore Comments
First Impressions of the stadium, parking, ease of entry. 8Coach stopped 50m from the turnstile and the stadium staff were ready and waiting, nice friendly reception
Food & Drink, range, quality, price. 5Quite a good selection of refreshments on offer but these were MK prices. One burger style van speedy service, reasonable price and quality. No drink outside, no food inside rule.
View from your seat, any poles in the way, obstructed view, seat broken? 7Decent view, no obstructions, plenty of leg room and no broken seats, the 345 Dons were in two stands
Home team support, was it a library, good banter between the fans? 6We learnt the Welsh for handball and they moaned a lot, no banter from them to us a little attempt from us to them passed without response.
What were the stewards like, helpful and friendly or jobsworths? 9Excellent group of stewards, full of chat and laughs before and during the game. Very helpful too.
Toilet facilities, clean and well equipped with hot water, disgusting. 7Decent to be fair only gripe was handdryers didnt work and if you were behind the goal it was a little bit of a trek to get there
Ticket pricing, did the price reflect the facilities of the ground? 6A fair price all things considered although it did seem a little dark. Were the the floodlights on ?
Ground facilities, half time service, did they let fans outside at halftime? 7Smoking was allowed in the open space behind the stand, they had food prepped to serve quickly, chips were popular and they struggled to keep
Match atmosphere, did the Dons fans give good support? 6The support behind the goal tried to inspire the side throughout the first half and for a fair bit of the second. Little noise from the home fans.
Ease of exit, did the carpark clear quickly, traffic around the stadium? 7Fairly reasonable exit out, didnt see any carpark from our part of the ground.
Any other observations or comments that may have affected your scoring?
