PUBLISHED: 10:53 27 March 2009 | UPDATED: 13:30 03 July 2010

Gorleston's 125th anniversary match against an FA Representative side was abandoned on Wednesday due to floodlight failure at Emerald Park.

The lights went out 10 minutes before kick-off and although electricians eventually restored power the game had to be stopped, with the FA side leading 1-0, when the problem returned.
