The Light Programme

The saga of Mossley's floodlights has entered a new and ever so slightly depressing chapter with the club issuing a statement that the pylons which didn't blow over have been declared unsafe.

This means two things. The first is that the club now has to find £30,000 to be able to erect a new set of lights. Fortunately Tameside Council have agreed to cover half of that cost (which is genuinely awfully good of them) but that still means £15,000 has to be found.

In order to reach that total the club are looking for donations and these can be made in one of three ways:

  1. Paypal - to reach the Mossley AFC Paypal page follow this link to the official site and then click on the donate button in the left hand column. Or alternatively, go direct to the Mossley AFC Paypal page here.

  2. By paying directly into the clubs bank account -

    Nat West Bank
    Mossley AFC Ltd.
    A/c. 10020778
    Sort code. 16-25-32

  3. Or by sending a cheque made payable to Mossley AFC to -

    Seel Park
    Market Street
    OL5 0ES

And I'm sure, as the Tesco slogan goes, every little helps.

I did say it meant two things and as I've only mentioned one I should relay the other. The safety issue regarding the remaining lights means that matches can no longer be played at Seel Park until the situation is rectified. This means that it's likely we'll spend from now until the end of the season moving nomadically around local grounds in order to fulfil our league fixtures a situation which, as I'm sure you can imagine, is hardly ideal.

It might not be good news but at least it's news.
