📝 New Floodlights To Be Installed At Blundell Park

Grimsby Town's floodlight towers at Blundell Park will be replaced in the summer

21 February 2019

Grimsby Town's floodlight towers at Blundell Park are set to be replaced during the close season.

The current floodlights were purchased second-hand from Wolves in 1958 and installed at the club in 1960.

Speaking of the need to replace the floodlight towers, Town director John Fenty said: “The old towers are not dangerous in any way, shape, or form. There are some corrosion issues, but that is predominately centred around the ladders.

“The lights aren’t sufficiently bright, we are struggling to keep them all on at the same time - for one reason or another.

"They are very old fittings, and we do a lot of work on them to keep them as best as they are.

“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.

"I doubt if they will be able to be used on a new stadium - I think they will be more for the community pitches.

"So they can be transplanted, it shouldn’t be wasted money. But of course the installation costs shall be duplicated but I don’t believe that is a big issue. “
