Information for travelling supporters heading to Yeovil Town tomorrow…
What is the ground like?
Huish Park is a tidy looking ground located in a pleasant setting, with lots of trees visible behind the stands. Both sides of the ground are similar looking stands and are of the same height.
At one end is the medium-sized Thatchers Gold Stand Terrace, which is covered, for home supporters and has windshields to either side. Opposite is the Radio Cabs (Copse Road) Terrace, which is given to away fans. This is smaller and uncovered.
Away fans are mostly situated in the Radio Cabs Stand at one end of the ground. This is an uncovered terrace, so water proofs are advised just in case. Up to 1,500 supporters can be housed in this area. Additionally, around 600 seats are allocated to visiting fans in the Screwfix Community Stand, along one side of the pitch, which is covered.
There are a couple of pubs within about 10-15 minutes walk of the ground; ‘The Arrow’ and ‘The Airfield Tavern.’ The latter has the benefit of a handy fish and chip shop located next door called Palmers.
The Arrow serves five beers from the Marstons range and two Guest ales, which were both supplied from the local Yeovil Brewery.
Travelling by road
Huish Park is located on the very outskirts of Yeovil and is signposted from the A303. Leave the A303 at the Cartgate roundabout and take the A3088 towards Yeovil. Follow the road for around four miles until you reach a roundabout on the outskirts of Yeovil with the Westlands Airfield directly in front of you. Turn left at this roundabout and then continue straight on, crossing a number of roundabouts. As you pass the entrance to an Asda superstore, take the next left for the ground, which can be seen from the road.
There is a fair sized car park at the ground (located behind the away end) which costs £2. However, as can be expected, it can take quite some time after the game has ended to exit. Otherwise, there is plenty of street car parking to be had on the roads leading down to the ground.

Travelling by train
Yeovil has two railway stations; Yeovil Junction and Pen Mill Junction. Both of these stations are located quite a distance from Huish Park, with Pen Mill Junction just under three miles away and Yeovil Junction almost five miles away. From both stations it is advised to get a taxi, or alternatively if you arrive at Yeovil Junction, then you can catch the ‘Hopper’ minibus to the bus station in the town centre.
If you intend going by taxi to the ground it is advised that you look up the number of a local taxi firms and pre-book one.
Programme - £3
