Matlock Town are inviting donations to help cover the cost of the club’s new floodlights.

The lights and pylons are in the process of being erected ahead of the new campaign and are expected to be fully operational for the opening pre-season friendly against Chesterfield on July 6.

And while the full cost of the lights has been budgeted for, chairman Tom Wright says any donations towards it would be welcomed.

He said: “We need to raise around £50,000 to fund the floodlights. We hope to get a grant of 50 per cent of the cost and donations up to date amount to £10,000 which leaves us with a shortfall of £20,000.

“We can cover this amount but it could impact on the playing budget so any contribution will be greatly received no matter how small.”

Anyone wishing to help can get in touch by contacting Tom Wright 07850065968 or via e mail:,or any committee member or via social media.
