History

The Mininera & District Football Association formed in 1925. In the early 1950s, eight clubs participated: Carranballac, Glenthompson, Lake Bolac, Mininera-Westmere Rovers, Streatham, Tatyoon, Wickliffe and Willaura.

In 1954, Mininera-Westmere Rovers merged with Streatham to form the SMW Rovers, and Dunkeld and Woorndoo entered the competition. In 1956, Woorndoo left the competition for the nearby Mount Noorat Football League.

In 1963, Carranballac folded. Caramut joined the competition from 1965 from the Port Fairy Football League. In 1970, Hawkesdale and Penshurst entered, and the competition changed its name to the Mininera & District Football League.

In 1986, Wickliffe merged with Lake Bolac, and Woorndoo re-entered the league in 1987.

In 1998, Hawkesdale merged with Macarthur (from the South West District Football League) and Willaura went into recess. In 1999 Lismore-Derrinallum entered the competition.

In 2000, the Mininera and District Football League absorbed some of the clubs from the defunct Ararat & District Football Association, including Caledonians-Miners, Prestige-Trinity and Moyston. Caledonians-Miners and Prestige-Trinity merged to form Ararat United, whilst Moyston merged with Willaura. In 2001, Woorndoo merged with Mortlake and Dunkeld went into recess. In 2003 Dunkeld merged with Glenthompson, and Ararat United went into recess before officially folding in 2005.

The league's newest club are the Ararat Eagles, who are joining the competition in 2011 from the Lexton Plains Football League, which disbanded after the 2010 season.[1]
