Western Football League
Season 2011–12

The 2011–12 Western Football League season (known as the 2011–12 Toolstation Western Football League for sponsorship reasons) was the 110th in the history of the Western Football League, a football competition in England. Teams were divided into two divisions; the Premier and the First.

Premier Division[edit]

The Premier Division featured two new teams in a league of 18 teams after the withdrawal of Dawlish Town:

  • Bridport, promoted as third-placed club in the First Division.
  • Merthyr Town, promoted as champions of the First Division.

Dawlish Town withdrew from the league on 22 July 2011, after the fixtures for the new season had been announced.[1] A new fixture list was subsequently compiled.
