Season 1942–43 was the fourth Scottish football season in which Dumbarton competed in regional football during World War II.

Overview[edit]

Each season in which Dumbarton had played in the Scottish Southern League saw an improvement in results and the third season was no different, by finishing 10th out of 16 with 28 points - 22 behind champions Rangers. The positive league results included a first home league win over Celtic since 1892.

Dumbarton however, continued to find it difficult to find success in the League Cup South where again they failed to negotiate the sectional stage of the competition - gaining just a single draw from six matches.

Finally in the Summer Cup, Dumbarton reached the second round before losing to eventual winners St Mirren.
