A former West Ham and England footballing legend delighted the crowds in Letchworth Garden City when he opened new changing facilities.

Sir Trevor Brooking CBE, the FA's director of football development, opened the new changing rooms of Letchworth GC Eagles last Wednesday.

He was assisted by Dylan Roberts from the club's under-sevens and Kieran Smith of the under-11s, and watched by many parents and players.

Club chairman Tony Eden welcomed guests including former team managers, volunteers and founder members of the club in 1979.

Eden thanked parents for their support and Letchworth GC Heritage Foundation for providing substantial financial support to enable the club to attract grant funding from the Football Foundation.

Sir Trevor also spoke about grassroots football and congratulated the club on its new facilities.
