About LGC Eagles YFC

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’ teams play mini soccer up to under 11, and full size from u11 to u18. They compete in the Royston Crow Youth Football League. Girls teams play in the Herts Girls league and the Chiltern League.

The club is affiliated with the Hertfordshire Football Association and in recent years have been awarded status as a Charter Standard Development Club. In 2008/9 Herts FA awarded the club the honour of being the County Charter Standard Development Club of the Year.

In 2006 new changing rooms were built with the aid of grants from the Football Foundation, the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation and other local bodies. They are now some of the best facilities for youth football in the County.

The club encourages all managers to study for a coaching qualification, and some have now qualified to advanced level.  We also have a Child Protection Policy which means that all coaches and managers are vetted by the Football Association and the police.

We are committed to good sportsmanship and behaviour of players, spectators and managers, which means parents, players and the club are required to sign a code of conduct at the time of registration.  Current costs.

The club wishes to encourage players of all abilities, but in pursuit of excellence, it offers a Saturday morning coaching school at the Pixmore Ground for children between the ages of 5 and 7. 

Letchworth Eagles home ground is at Pixmore playing fields adjoining the North Herts Leisure Centre.  For more information contact the club Chairman or Secretary.  Applications by new players and adults wishing to coach teams or set up teams for girls are welcome and should be addressed to the Officers of the club or manager for the age group.
