Athlone Town statement regarding floodlight failure

Shortly before our First Division opener against Waterford at Athlone Town Stadium was due to kick off there was a brief but unfortunate power failure at the ground.

The situation was remedied a few minutes later when power was restored.

As a result of what happened it was agreed that kick off should be put back by 30 minutes.

Thankfully the game commenced at 8-15pm, when the flood lighting was back to the required standard, and ended in a 1-0 victory for the home side.

Athlone Town AFC will conduct a full investigation to determine what caused the problem.

At this point in time it looks like the problem was caused by an unexplained power surge.

A mix of gremlins and bad luck.
The club wishes to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the delay.
