Dumbarton's sixth consecutive season in the Second Division, while certainly an improvement on the previous season, was unremarkable in most respects. Never really threatened by relegation, there was also never a chance of promotion and finished 11th out of 20 with 36 points - 18 behind champions Ayr United.
In the Scottish Cup, Dumbarton were knocked out in the first round by Hamilton.
Locally, Dumbarton were runners-up in the Dumbartonshire Cup for the fourth season running, losing out to Clydebank in the final.
All results are written with Dumbarton's score first.

Amongst those players joining and leaving the club were the following:
* The league match against Dundee United on 26 November marked John Russell's 100th appearance for Dumbarton in all national competitions - the 23rd Dumbarton player to reach this milestone.
* The league match against Ayr United on 24 March marked Archibald McLardie's 100th appearance for Dumbarton in all national competitions - the 24th Dumbarton player to reach this milestone.
* The highlight of the season was undoubtedly the record-breaking goal scoring of new signing Angus Urquhart, who scored 36 goals in 35 league appearances - one of which he played in goal!
