Notes: Ormiston Primrose (from the East juniors) and East of Scotland side Pencaitland merged in the close season of 1998-1999 to form Pencaitland & Ormiston FC, and the new side elected to play at Ormiston rather than the troublesome pitch at Easter Pencaitland. The club dropped the 'Pencaitland' name to become Ormiston FC in 2002.
The club vacated Recreation Park in 2017 and spent a year playing out of the nearby Hibernian Training Centre. Ormiston took up residence at their new ground in 2018, which had been built on land adjacent to their previous home.
