The club was established in 1978/9 when it was known as Westbury United. The name was subsequently changed to Letchworth Garden City Eagles and by 2010 the club has expanded to over 450 registered players between the ages of 6 and 18 , boys and girls. In 2008/9 two adult teams were formed to provide an exit route for youth players. They compete in the Herts Senior County League. The boys and girls teams play mini soccer up to under 11, and full size from u11 to u18.

What we expect from parents

When you entrust your child to volunteer coaches of Eagles teams the club has a responsibility to make sure that they are safe, and that that their welfare is paramount..

To do this we need your help. Parents have a responsibility to make sure that sons and daughters are collected on time from training sessions, so that coaches do not have to wait behind with another adult until the player is collected, or younger children are left to find their own way home. Ideally we would like all parents to attend training and matches and not just drop of and collected, but that is not possible for some families so we can only express the hope that parents can spend as much time as possible watching their child.

The FA Respect campaign is intended for adults just as much as the players. Parents should encourage not criticise, never use foul or abusive language when standing on the touchline at matches, and never threaten players, other spectators, coaches or match officials. If they do they risk the Eagles asking them to leave and remove their child from the club in extreme cases. It has happened.

Social networking sites are often a source of bullying and because they are not censored unfair comments about other clubs or match officials cannot be controlled. Parents are therefore asked to make sure that children, particularly under 12 years of age, do not use pages on Facebook, Twitter or other social networking sites to attack or bully others as a result of football activity. The FA monitors such sites and the club may be held responsible for comments that the FA deems unreasonable.
