East Lothian Council have agreed to provide funding for the installation of floodlights at these three East of Scotland League grounds, allowing the clubs to progress towards applying for licences and full SFA membership.

...unless the SFA shifts the goalposts again.

It now looks likely that a minimum of 14 of the current 16 Premier League clubs, and 12 of the 24 Conference clubs will have floodlights next season.

A fantastic achievement for the clubs concerned, with due credit to the local Councils who have supported some of them.

Yes indeed. But how many have covered seating, which will probably be the next card played by the SFA to keep down the number of licensed clubs.

The clubs know that seating is the next requirement. It's less of a hurdle than floodlighting. Some are working on it at this moment.

Civil Service Strollers lights up and running now too per their Twitter. No news from Vale of Leithen (who could well be relegated anyway) that I'm aware of.

Burntisland Shipyard and Golspie Sutherland both have planning applications in for lights and have secured the necessary funding.

Camelon have also acquired lights over the last month - a really impressive set of mobile ones. They have already used them and they were excellent. Next time they will be wheeled out is for a City Cup game against Edinburgh City in a couple of weeks

Whitehill Welfare's funding appeal has been pulling in decent money and they now have a plan for lights.

Edinburgh United and Coldstream have also launched funding programmes to install floodllights.
