They play in the East Regional League Division 1.

History[edit]

Lismore's foundation dates back to 1901, when the Royal High School FP club was based at Jock's Lodge in the east of Edinburgh.[1] Some of the players felt that they were being excluded from RHSFP's team, so started their own club, named after Lismore crescent nearby.[1] The club moved around several times, locating to Duddingston, and ending up in their present location in a south side clubhouse, and playing near Cameron Toll.

Milne's Bar on Rose Street, was their clubhouse around the Second World War period.[1]

They started a women's side in 1994.[1]
