WEST Coast Am­a­teur Foot­ball Club plans to host sev­eral night games this sea­son thanks to four light tow­ers be­ing in­stalled re­cently.

The club has been train­ing un­der the lights but they will not be fully com­mis­sioned un­til the end of the month.

Town of Cam­bridge ($50,000), Depart­ment of Sport and Recre­ation ($50,000), West Coast Sport­ing As­so­ci­a­tion ($50,000) and WA Foot­ball Com­mis­sion ($10,000) funded the $160,000 project.

Tigers pres­i­dent Sam Birm­ing­ham said the se­niors hoped to play about four home games un­der lights on Fri­day or Satur­day nights in the 2015 sea­son.

“It’s huge for the club be­cause there’s no other club in the area that has this level of light­ing,” Birm­ing­ham said. “It’s as good as or even bet­ter light­ing than Clare­mont Oval and some other WAFL clubs.

“We’ve also got new clu­b­rooms, so it’s a great home for the play­ers to come back to.”

Tigers will field three se­nior and one colts team this year to com­ple­ment its ju­nior club that had 400 mem­bers last year.
