Report

The Fermanagh and Western Football League (Soccer) played its first seasn in 1904-05, which was won by St. Michaels Hall Celtic who won five of the first six league titles. After a break from 2013-14 to 2018-19 due to World War I, Enniskillen Corinthians emerged as the next great team, winning five titles in the 1920s. They won two more in the 1930s with Omagh Depot three times winners during the decade. RAF teams won five Championships during World War II, but then when things went back to normal, Fivemiletown United won twice to start off the 1950s, then Enniskillen Corinthians won three times in four years, vying for the title with Enniskille Rangers who won three in five years.

In the 1960s Enniskillen Rangers took over as the dominant club, winning five in a row from 1961-62 to 1965-66. Lisbellaw United won twice and the Enniskillen Corinthians twice to finish off the decade. The 1970s saw a Lisbellaw United win five times in six yearsfrom 1975-76 to 1980-81. Shelbourne then won three in a row before Irvinestown Wanderers (twice) and Enniskillen Rangers (four times) decided the Championshp between themselves from 1984-85 to 1991-92. Then for the next five years it was Shelbourne (twice) and Dergview (three times Champions).

Ballinamallard United Reserves won twice either side of the Millennium, and Enniskillen Town United won five in a row from 2004-05 to 2008-09, the first team since Enniskillen Rangers in 1965-66 to achieve that feat. Lisbellaw United won three in a row immediately following that, and Strathroy Harps then won three times in four years. Enniskillen Rangers won two times in the late 2010s, before Tummery Athletic put a new name on the winners roll in 2019-20. The season was not completed in 2020-21.
