Western Football League
Season 2010–11

The 2010–11 Western Football League season (known as the 2010–11 Toolstation Western Football League for sponsorship reasons) was the 109th in the history of the Western Football League, a football competition in England. Teams were divided into two divisions; the Premier and the First.

The league champions for the first time in their history were Larkhall Athletic. The champions of Division One were newcomers Merthyr Town.

Premier Division[edit]

The Premier Division featured two new clubs in a league of 19, reduced from 20 the previous season after Bideford were promoted to the Southern League, and Calne Town and Melksham Town were relegated to the First Division:

  • Odd Down, runners-up in the First Division.
  • Wells City, champions of the First Division.

Premier League champions Larkhall Athletic[1] and runners-up Bitton[2] were both ineligible for promotion to the Southern League due to ground grading issues.
