County Caps[edit]

As part of the growth of the sport in Scotland, inter-county matches began to be an established part of the football calendar with the 'cream' of each county being selected to play for their respective counties/cities. One of the earliest was a match played at Hampden Park on 29 April 1876 between Dumbartonshire and Glasgow for the benefit of the Western Infirmary. James Boyd and James Meikleham were selected from Dumbarton to play in the Dumbartonshire team, with Glasgow winning 2-0.

Transfers[edit]

Of note amongst those appearing in club colours for the first time this season was Peter Miller.

Factfile[edit]

* Dumbarton remained unbeaten in their 8 home matches during the season - 7 wins and a draw.
* For the first time, Dumbarton also ran a 'second' (reserve) team.
