Letchworth Garden City Eagles Youth Football Club was awarded £1350 to purchase goal posts for the under 14 and under 16 teams. The club has approximately 500 players with junior teams from under 7’s to under 18’s. The club is at full capacity, but the additional goals will enable the club to hold more games at the site at the same time. Volunteer led, the club offers children, many of whom come from deprived backgrounds, the opportunity to play football. It also provides financial support scheme for families in need.
Paul Scott, Chair of the LGCE Mini & Youth, said, “With the ever increasing number of boys and girls who wish to play football it is vital that clubs like Letchworth Garden City Eagles have the equipment necessary to facilitate safe, fun and structured playing opportunities. We are extremely grateful to NHDC for the grant to allow us to purchase new goals for the Club.”
