In their first season as Livingston they were crowned champions of the Third Division for the 1995/96 season. Three years later, in 1998/99, they won promotion again as Second Division champions. Another promotion followed in 2000/01 when the club finished champions of First Division and gained promotion to the Scottish Premier League (SPL), just six seasons after the relocation to Livingston. Livingston's first SPL campaign, 2001/02, brought more success as they finished third in the league (behind the Old Firm) and qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first time.
Jim Leishman's side gave a competent showing in the UEFA Cup. After disposing of FC Vaduz of Liechtenstein on the away goal rule after a 1-1 draw, they came up against SK Sturm Graz of Austria, and after a 14-goal, two-leg affair they missed out on the second round, going out on the wrong side of an 8-6 aggregate scoreline. The club avoided relegation the following season finishing 9th.
After this season, manager Jim Leishman became the club's director of football and was replaced by Brazilian manager MÃ¡rcio Maximo, who resigned only a few months into the following campaign and was in turn replaced by Leishman's former assistant, Davie Hay. Under Hay's management, Livingston won their first national trophy in 2004 by winning the 2003/04 League Cup after a 2-0 win over Hibernian at Hampden Park. The goals in the final were scored by Derek Lilley and Jamie McAllister.
