The Health and Safety Executive has also been informed about the incident at the Pilgrim Way venue.

The floodlight was left bent in half, with the top part collapsed onto the floor, as a result of the gusty conditions on Thursday.

In a statement, the club said: “Boston United can confirm that one of the club’s floodlights sustained wind damage on Thursday morning.

“No-one was working in the area - and none of the other structures were affected.

“The floodlighting contractors will be carrying out investigations over the coming days - and the Health and Safety Executive have been informed.

“No further comment will be made at this stage.”

United moved into their multi-million-pound stadium in December.

Matches at the stadium, just off the A16 in Wyberton, are currently on hold due to the National League North season being declared null and void.
