Eternit Football Club, formerly known as Atlas Sports, was founded in 1932.
The Atlas always had a strong football team and records show that in 1949 they were in the Cambs League Div.1A and were beating teams like Bassingbourn 8 – 0. The regular team was Roy Winter, Jeff Catley, Harry Pullen, Derek Cooper, Bob Jacobs, Doug Piggott, Keith Bullen, Jackie Woods, Claude Ellis, Mick Chapman and Dennis Cross. This team won the Foster, Junior Cups and also Divison 1 in 1949 / 50.
In 1953 the team played in the Parthenon League which was a higher grade of Football. Although the team won 7 matches it was felt that the expense of running a team in this league was too great and next season they were back in the Cambs league. Newcomers to the team included Ken Winter (who has written his memories of the season), Tony Cooper and Tippi Woods, who was brother to Jackie and Bob Woods. Jackie and Bob Jacobs had made their names with Cambridge Town and Jackie had represented the Spartan League on many occasions. The Atlas won the Foster Cup again in 1954/55.
The Eternit Football Team went on a record breaking run beginning in 1983 when they won the Cambs League Divisions 5, 4, 3 and 2 in consecutive seasons never losing a league match. The Manager during this time was Peter Warboys and the Chairman was Robert Henry. The players included Topper Day, Andy Jones, Alan Howell, Trevor Knowles, Chris Pearl, Mervyn Hayes, Jed Knights, Tony Payne, Simon Scott, Sean Henry, Alan Hill, Chris Warboys, Andy Rogers, Paul and Simon Lewis.
