As the nights draw in and Cambridge players contemplate winter training, they can look forward to doing so under renovated floodlights at John Kerkhof Park.
Club facilities manager Craig Clark has completed a lengthy project to repair and upgrade lighting at the senior grounds, ensuring better conditions for training and more security lighting around the clubrooms and carpark.
The process has taken two years with new lights bought to replace failing lights on pitch 2, and on the northern training area.
The project was complicated by the need to replace underground cabling but club volunteers (including president Peter Martens and a willing granddaughter, pictured) helped see the work through.
An electrical contractor was needed for the work up high while club member and volunteer Ben Feaver, who is an electrician, helped Craig Clark complete the project in time for the oncoming season.
Former Cambridge player (and currently with Matamata Swifts) Rob Cox, and his team at Scott Electrical, helped with sourcing the best possible and cost-efficient parts.
Our thanks to Craig and all those who helped with the work.
