East Fife F.C. was founded in 1903 following a public meeting after local demands to establish a senior football side in the area. The club firstly joined the Fife League, then the Eastern League and finally the Northern League, before settling for a while in the Central League from 1909 until 1921. By this time the Central League was becoming successful and prosperous, serving the thriving mining communities of Fife and West Lothian. In order to stop migration of its players to the Central League, the Scottish Football League admitted the majority of the Central League members, including East Fife, to join. In 1927 East Fife reached the Scottish Cup final, losing to Celtic. In 1938 the team made history by beating Kilmarnock in the final to become the first and, so far, only team to have won the Scottish Cup whilst in the second tier of the Scottish Football League. The decade following the end of World War II was the most successful for the club, however, with East Fife winning three Scottish League Cup finals and became the first team to have won it three times. They also reached another Scottish Cup final and had four finishes in the top four of the First Division (then the top flight) during this period.
