Season 1928–29 was the 52nd Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed at national level, entering the Scottish Football League for the 30th time and the Scottish Cup for the 41st time.

Overview[edit]

With just two wins from their first 11 league games, Dumbarton's hopes for promotion in their seventh successive season in the Second Division was never going to be a real possibility. In the end Dumbarton finished 14th out of 19, with 31 points - 20 behind champions Dundee United.[1]

In the Scottish Cup, Dumbarton reached the third round before losing out to Raith Rovers.

Locally, Dumbarton were runners-up in the Dumbartonshire Cup for the fifth season running, again losing out to Clydebank in the final.
