Dumbarton
1899–1900 season
Stadium Boghead Park, Dumbarton

Season 1899–1900 was the 27th Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed at national level entering the Scottish Qualifying Cup for the second time.

Overview[edit]

For the third season running there was no league fixtures, and attractive 'friendlies' were becoming more difficult to arrange.

In their only 'national' competition, Dumbarton were knocked out in the second round of the Scottish Qualifying Cup by Vale of Leven and thus failed to qualify for the Scottish Cup. For the first time in the club's history it would not compete in any of Scotland's premier football competitions.

Locally, the Dumbartonshire Cup was played on a league basis for the first time with the top two meeting in the final. All competing teams finished on 6 points but Dumbarton ended up in third position on goal difference.

A dwindling fixture list saw only 11 'other' matches played during the season, although this included a creditable draw against Celtic and a match against Aberdeen which celebrated the opening of Pittodrie Park. Of these matches 4 were won, 1 drawn and 6 lost, scoring 23 goals and conceding 34.
