Overview[edit]

According to records of the time, Dumbarton played their home matches at Lowmans Park during the 1876-77 season.

Despite an encouraging start in the Scottish Cup campaign, by disposing of their local rivals Renton in the first round, Dumbarton disappointingly lost out to Lennox in the third round of the competition.[1]

Elsewhere, 8 'other' matches were played, including home and away fixtures against their local rivals, Vale of Leven and Glasgow side, South Western. Of these matches, 4 were won, 2 drawn and 2 lost, scoring 18 goals and conceding 6.
