LONDON (AP) - Powerful lights confiscated by police during marijuana raids are now being used by the groundsman of English third tier soccer club Rochdale to help the turf grow on its field.

Police donated the lights to the club last week to avoid having to pay for their disposal.

Oli Makin bolted together two old goalposts, attached the lights and placed the rig over damaged areas of the field, such as the goalmouth.

Makin says “we wouldn’t be able to buy the rigs that Premier League clubs have because of the cost - the small ones cost 30,000 pounds ($48,000).”
