Season 1929–30 was the 53rd Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed at national level, entering the Scottish Football League for the 31st time and the Scottish Cup for the 42nd time.

Overview[edit]

With just 5 wins to show for their efforts in the league campaign up to the new year, it was to prove yet another fruitless season for Dumbarton, their eighth season in a row in the Second Division, and in the end finished 16th out of 20, with 30 points - 27 behind champions Leith Athletic.[1]

In the Scottish Cup, Dumbarton were knocked out in the first round by Cowdenbeath.

Locally, for the first time since 1923, Dumbarton won the Dumbartonshire Cup, beating Clydebank in the final.

Elsewhere a challenge match was played against a Dumbartonshire Juvenile XI.
