Formed in 1967, Loughgall have enjoyed a largely successful existence throughout their relatively short history.
After progressing through local junior leagues, Loughgall were admitted to the Irish League family in the early 1990s under the guidance of legendary boss Alfie Wylie who spent 13 years at Lakeview Park from 1986-99!
After taking a few seasons to find their feet at that level the Villagers embarked on a run of four successive 'B' Division league titles from 1994/95 to 1997/98.
Indeed, that final campaign also brought success in the Irish FA Intermediate Cup while, the season before, the Bob Radcliffe Cup was claimed for the second time in club history - a trophy they have gone on to win no fewer than ten times since then!
Further league titles followed before, in 2004/05, Loughgall were promoted to the top flight for the first time achieving a respectable 12th (out of 16) spot in that maiden senior season.
That position was improved upon the following year but, at the end of the 2006/07 they unfortunately finished bottom of the table and suffered relegation back to the second tier.
Niall Currie then stepped into the managerial hotseat and, in his first full campaign (2007/08), steered the club to five trophies and then another League/Bob Radcliffe double the season after that!
The Villagers continued to be a threat at intermediate level in the decade that followed, albeit without the same level of success, but it was only at the end of the 2022/23 season that Loughgall finally won promotion back to the Premiership again - and immediately grabbed the headlines when it was discovered the village itself (pop: 283) would become the smallest settlement in Europe with a team playing in the top flight of their domestic league!
