Season 1926–27 was the 50th Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed at national level, entering the Scottish Football League for the 28th time and the Scottish Cup for the 39th time.

Overview[edit]

Dumbarton's fifth successive season in the Second Division saw a further decline in performances, and with 5 defeats coming in their first 7 games it was clear that the team would struggle. In the end a miserable 18th place out of 20 was achieved with 32 points - a distant 34 behind champions Bo'ness. Indeed going into the last league game, Dumbarton were lying in 19th place and favourites to go through the election process for relegation to the Third Division, but an unbelievable 5-0 away win at Ayr would save their Second Division status.[1]

In the Scottish Cup, Dumbarton reached the second round before losing out to Alloa after a replay.

Locally, Dumbarton were again runners-up in the Dumbartonshire Cup. A fortunate 'toss of the coin' win over Clydebank in the replayed semifinal was followed by a heavy defeat to non-league Helesburgh in the final.
