|Champions||Bristol City Reserves (Division One)

The 1925–26 season was the 29th in the history of the Western Football League.

- Bristol City Reserves, rejoining after leaving the league in 1921.
- Bristol Rovers Reserves, rejoining after leaving the league in 1921.
- Exeter City Reserves, rejoining after leaving the league in 1921.
- Plymouth Argyle Reserves
- Swindon Town Reserves, rejoining after leaving the league in 1921.
- Taunton United
- Torquay United, rejoining after leaving the league in 1922.
