The Guernsey FA was formed in 1893, and a military league was established on the island in the same year. 
Northerners AC was founded in November 1892. In 1893 the newly formed Guernsey Rangers played Association Football against various military teams, but the inter island contests were confined to Rugby.
In February 1894  a league was formed in which Rangers joined with military sides. The competition was named the Priaulx Cup and was won by the Band Company, 2nd Battalion Royal Fusilliers.
Northerners were the first non military winners in 1899-00.
In the 1890s The Channel Islands became a popular venue for English club tours- Upton Park  and Swindon Town both visited in 1897. 
The Jersey FA was formed in 1905 and  The Jersey Football League's inaugural season was 1904-05.
Jersey Wanderers won the league in 1906 and 1913, otherwise military teams dominated up until 1914.
Football in Alderney is a more modest affair yet. The win over Guernsey in 1920 is 1 of only 2 games Alderney have ever won.The inter island tournament was introduced in 1905, sponsored by the Muratti tobacco company.
