Stenhousemuir F.C. was founded in 1884 by a breakaway group from a local junior team Heather Rangers. The team is nicknamed 'The Warriors' and the club mascot is 'Willie the Warrior', a Viking-like figure with a round shield and horned helmet. The nickname is known to have been in use since at least 1887, but its exact origins are unknown. The Warriors were successful around the turn of the century, winning the Scottish Qualifying Cup twice in 1901 and 1902 and reaching the Scottish Cup semi final in 1903. Stenhousemuir joined the Scottish Football League Second Division in 1921 and remained there until 1975 when, partially due to recent league reorganisation, the club found itself relegated to the Third Division. It has remained in the lower divisions since this time. The team enjoyed some success in the mid 1990's, reaching the quarter final of the Scottish Cup, beating St Johnstone and Aberdeen from higher divisions on the way in 1994-95. In 1995-96 they reached the final of the Scottish League Challenge Cup. About 2,500 Stenhousemuir supporters travelled to Perth to watch their team win a close encounter, finally beating big spending Dundee United on penalties. Since 1890 Stenhousemuir have played at Ochilview Park, which currently has a capacity of 3,776.
