“Further efforts to source the needed components saw a delivery today, but the wrong type was sent to us meaning the test this evening was failed.”

The spokesperson added that it continues to be a huge challenge to ensure the facilities at Finn Park meet licensing criteria and we are very grateful to our volunteers and local tradespeople for their ongoing efforts.

They added “This regrettable situation is further evidence that the move to a new stadium is vital for the survival of the club.

“Following Friday’s match the board will continue efforts to address the floodlight situation for future home matches and inform supporters of any developments.

“We would again like to thank our supporters for their understanding and continued support.”

Tickets for Friday can be purchased at or at Aldi side of ground on the evening of the game.
