19 January 2018

Sponsored by

Information received from Avon and Somerset Police for the away fixture at Yeovil Town tomorrow, 3pm.

Directions from the Midlands and North 

Take the M5 south to junction 25 (Taunton). Take the A358 signposted Ilminster until joining the A303 at Horton Cross. Continue along the A303 in an easterly direction which is signposted Andover and London until the Cartgate roundabout and then take the A3088 which is signposted Yeovil. 

At the first roundabout, turn left; at the second roundabout go straight on (past the Crematorium) then at the third island, take the first exit again at the Asda roundabout into Lufton Way. The main entrance to the stadium is approx. half a mile along on the right. 

Traffic Commissioners guidelines - are followed as a matter of cause. 

The Traffic Commissioners’ Guidelines, together with the Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol) Act 1985, as amended by the Public Order Act 1986, prohibits alcohol on a vehicle which :- 

is either a public service vehicle or a vehicle adapted to carry more than 8 passengers (i.e. mini bus) and is being used for the principal purpose of carrying passengers for the whole or part of a journey to or from a designated sporting event.

Coach Operators are reminded to keep to the following new guidelines when carrying supporters to and from football matches :- 

1. Coaches are not to stop within 10 miles of the venue either on route to or from the event unless prior agreement is obtained from the local Police Liaison Officer.

2. Unless directed otherwise by a Police Officer, coaches may not stop at premises where intoxicating liquor is sold unless it is sold as ancillary to a substantial meal.

3. Coaches are to arrive at the venue no earlier than two hours before and not later than one hour before kick-off.

4. Coaches are not to set down or uplift passengers at any unauthorised locations without prior permission of the police.

5. Coaches must leave the venue within one hour of the finish of the event. 

The Commissioner has powers to attach conditions to Operators’ Licences in relation to journeys to and from football matches, but prefers to rely on co-operation between Operators and Police. 

The Police have been asked to notify the Commissioner of any incidents where the guidelines have not been followed so that he may consider whether any conditions should be imposed. 

Away fans information:

Car Parking: 

Car parking is available at Huish Park, priced at £3 a car on both sides of the ground. Follow the signs from the A303 and the Asda Roundabout. 

Disabled Fans Parking: 

The Yeovil Town FC Disabled Supporters Association manages the disabled parking space allocation for home supporters with bays being allocated adjacent to the stadium.

Home supporters who have been allocated a space will have instructions given on application of a space.

Parking in surrounding areas

We would ask all supporters visiting Huish Park to be respectful to our neighbours.

There are large areas of industrial estates to the west of the stadium and large residential areas to the east.

If fans wish to park off site we would ask that you favour the industrial areas and avoid the heighted red area, so as to minimise disruption to the local residents.

Yeovil has two railway stations, Yeovil Pen Mill which links with trains from Bristol and Birmingham, and Yeovil Junction which has a regular service from London Waterloo and Exeter. 

Both stations are about three miles from Huish Park and unless you love walking, a taxi to the ground would be advisable. Taxis are always available at both stations.
