Season 1905–06 was the 29th Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed at national level, entering the Scottish Combination League for the first time and the Scottish Qualifying Cup for the fourth time.

Overview[edit]

After an absence of four seasons, Dumbarton returned to competitive professional football when an application to join the Scottish Combination League was successful. A slow start meant that just 3 points were taken from the first four fixtures, but Dumbarton then went on a 15 match winning streak to win the title with some ease. Subsequently, the club were elected to Scottish League Division 2.

However the attempt to qualify for the Scottish Cup was short-lived following a second round defeat in the Scottish Qualifying Cup to Hamilton.

Locally, the Dumbartonshire Cup was played on a league basis. Three teams entered with the top two in the league to play off in the final. Dumbarton finished top of the league but lost out to Vale of Leven in the final.

During the season, 13 'other' matches were played, including an impressive win over a strong Rangers side. Of these matches, 9 were won, 3 drawn and just 1 lost, scoring 43 goals and conceding 16.

Note: The return fixture against Alloa Athletic was never played, presumably as the result would not have affected the outcome of the league championship.

Election results[edit]

There were four places available for election to the Second Division - the 13 applicants being the two bottom clubs from the previous season together with 7 clubs from the Scottish Combination and 4 from the Northern League.
