The problem is is that the floodlight towers are too high, and too far back from the playing area, to use energy efficient LED lamps. These towers were designed to use a mercury vapour discharge lamp or a HQL equivalent which is more environmentally friendly, but both of which are significantly more expensive to use.
I’m assuming they’ll install LED lighting along the top of the main stand and the top of the John Smith’s stand, or whatever it’s called now.


I am told there are to be floodlights in all 4 corners on lower columns. As you said, to get the spread of light these days you don't have to go so high and fittings can direct the light much more.

The logical solution would be to use the roof of stands but it appears the club aren't utilising that option.

As JF stated:

“Our objective is to probably reduce those to the ground in the close season, and replace them with four new stanchions, which will be of the sort that will tilt down to the ground so that they are easy to maintain"


Columns which are able to be lowered for maintenance.
Sensible option with the costs involved.
Logical to use this method as opposed to mounting on the stands-far easier for access & maintenance.

Plus I'd have thought that the Main Stand roof would be too low and create glare in the eyes of players and for people in the lower Findus.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I’d like to think we would be looking at ones that would be easier to re- locate if required 🤔


Apparently my wife is loving me because I don’t really pay attention to what she is actually saying !!

So he'll still be having a hands-on role with their maintenance then?
