The Sky Bet League One match between Stevenage and Cambridge was called off on Friday night due to a power cut.

Some fans were already in the Lamex Stadium when the lights went out prior to the 7.45pm kick off, with Cambridge’s social media accounts reporting more were stranded outside due to the power outage affecting the turnstiles.

At 8.19pm Stevenage announced the match had been “cancelled” on X, formerly known as Twitter, later confirming the cause was a power cut via a statement from UK Power Networks.

A club statement read: “Tonight’s fixture vs Cambridge United at the Lamex Stadium has been cancelled due to a local area power cut.

“Tickets purchased for this evening’s fixture will remain valid for the rearranged fixture. Refunds will also be made possible with details announced in due course.”
