The club was formed through the amalgamation of Western United, Yorketown and Edithburgh football clubs. In 1994, Members of the 3 clubs became the committee for the Southern Eagles and competition commenced within the Yorke Valley League, now the Yorke Peninsula Football League. Netball teams were included, being a stipulation of the league. This began a family day of sport to be enjoyed on a Saturday during the winter season.
The Management Committee consists of interested members of the Southern Eagles Football and Netball clubs. Their role is to discuss and ensure smooth running of the club.
