Season 1992–93 was the 109th football season in which Dumbarton competed at a Scottish national level, entering the Scottish Football League for the 87th time, the Scottish Cup for the 98th time, the Scottish League Cup for the 46th time and the Scottish Challenge Cup for the third time.

Overview[edit]

Following the success of the previous season, Dumbarton went into the new league campaign with some confidence, particularly as the squad of players at the start remained virtually unchanged. Within the first few months however the club were to lose the services of their top scorer (Jimmy Gilmour) and their captain (Jim Dempsey). Nevertheless, by the end of October Dumbarton were up with the leaders but thereafter the results were to become more mixed and Dumbarton fell down the table, although were never in any real danger of relegation, and finished in 9th place

In the national cup competitions, it was a case of yet another season of early exits - but not only that, there were to be no goals either. In the Scottish Cup it would be Premier Division Dundee who would end Dumbarton's ambitions in the third round.

In the League Cup, Rangers - the eventual winners of the cup - were the opponents and saw off Dumbarton easily in the second round.

Finally, it was a first round exit in the B&Q Cup - however the defeat to Hamilton would prove to be the first of that club's run to winning the cup itself.

Locally, in the Stirlingshire Cup it would be Premier Division Falkirk who would end Dumbarton's interest in the semi final.
