Originally formed in 1891 by nine clubs, the league was officially dissolved in 1892, but reconstituted as a new league, but without the champions Raith Rovers. The Midland League lasted for six seasons in total, and was superceded by the creation of the Central Combination in 1897 which included four of the Midland League clubs.
An attempt at re-forming the Midland League came in 1903 when ten clubs met in Glasgow. This version lasted just one season before six of the eastern clubs left to reform the Eastern League.
The last time the Midland League was played was between 1908 and 1911 when Bo'ness, Broxburn Athletic, Clackmannan, Dunblane, Falkirk 'A', Stenhousemuir and West Lothian Albion banded together. Bo’ness, Broxburn Athletic and Stenhousemuir went on to help form the Central League in 1909, while champions Falkirk ‘A’ were one of the founder members of the Scottish Reserve League. Broxburn Shamrock joined but the competition fizzled out and was unfinished by the end of the season. The Midland League disbanded soon after.
