Burgess Hill Town are looking forward to lighting up their Leylands Park home when the new season kicks off after smashing a £10,000 fundraising target for new floodlights.
Renamed the More Than Tyres Stadium earlier this month, the home of the Isthmian League South East Division club will be sporting new state-of-the-art floodlights thanks to the success of their ‘Light Up Leylands’ campaign.
Launched only three weeks ago on 10 July, Hillians fans, players and sponsors passed the £10k milestone on Monday with 11 days to go. At lunchtime today (Tuesday), the total stood £10,210.
According to a statement from the delighted Hillians, the Crowdfunder appeal is being left open until 8 August to help raise more cash for further ground improvements.

The Hillians told fans: “Following the launch of our Crowdfunder campaign back on July 10th, you have absolutely smashed our target with eleven days to go!
“A massive thank you to everyone who donated to our Light Up Leylands campaign! We have received generous donations from players, supporters and local businesses.
“There are still chances for you to get involved, with our new stretch target. Any extra contributions will go towards further improvements around the ground. Our Crowdfunder remains open until August 8th, so there’s still time to check out our our campaign page!”
