The first recorded trace of a football club in the village is in 1905 but it is believed a club existed in Stotfold before this. In 1906 the Biggleswade & District League while in 1908 it is documented that a Christmas morning match against Arlesey was abandoned due to a pitch invasion by spectators. The club's first silverware was win in 1912, a 1-0 defeat of Potton securing the Biggleswade League title.
In 1919-20 Stotfold Athletic were runners up in the Biggleswade League and were runners-up in the Scott Gatty Cup. They were again beaten in the final of this competition four years later.
After the Second World War Chelsea Charles, Paddy Dailey and Bernard Allen started the Stotfold Youth side which evolved into the current club, initially playing at Hitchin Road Rec. In 1951 the fledgling club joined the South Midlands League, winning promotion at the first attempt and landing the Division One title in 1954.
After finishing runners up in the SML Premier six times the Eagles finally won the championship in 1981 and followed up by winning the league's Challenge Trophy twelve months later. There were several near misses in the Bedfordshire Senior Cup before it was finally won in 1965. The club's best FA Amateur cup run saw them reach the First Round proper in 1958-59, losing to Erith & Belvedere.
Stotfold moved to Roker in 1965, the site had earlier staged football in the early years of the century.
In 1984 Stotfold joined the United Counties League and in the last decade or so they have been successful, notably in cup football. Their best league campaigns saw them finish as runners-up in 1994 and 1996. Stotfold have also been consistent performers in the FA Vase in recent seasons.
Stotfold won the Knockout Cup in 1999 and were runners up in 1992, they were Bedfordshire Senior Cup winners in 1994 and Premier Cup winners in 1992 and 1999. The Eagles have also won the Hinchingbrooke Cup, Southern Combination Cup on four occasions and the North Beds Charity Cup nine times.
