If a dominant 2021 season was not enough for the Boyup Brook Football Club to be happy about this year, they will definitely be smiling after the installation of two new light towers at their home ground. The new pair of 30m light towers, which were co-funded by the club and the Boyup Brook Shire, were installed on the club-room side of the Beatty Street oval last week to replace the old lights, which had rust issues. The club had been using several smaller portable lighting towers to train since the start of the football season, which were on loan from local businesses. Club president Paul Riley said it was amazing to have the new lights up and running. “The lights we had before weren’t that functional, they only lit up a small, little area,” he said. “Now to get these two new ones up and they’re pointing in the right direction is just excellent.” Boyup Brook Shire president Richard Walker said the Shire would be looking to apply for another grant in coming months to buy another two towers for the other side of the ground, where temporary lights were still being used. Cr Walker said it was great to see the community work together to make the upgrades possible. “The football club contributed as well so it’s a bit of a community effort, which is really good,” he said. Cr Walker said the new lights would also hopefully make a new range of activities possible at the ground. Players trained under the new lights for the first time on Thursday night.
