Season 1998–99 was the 115th football season in which Dumbarton competed at a Scottish national level, entering the Scottish Football League for the 93rd time, the Scottish Cup for the 104th time and the Scottish League Cup for the 52nd time.

Overview[edit]

Following three successive seasons of failure, Dumbarton produced what would be a marginally better league performance. Indeed, up until the beginning of April it was still technically possible for Dumbarton to have gained promotion, but in the end ran out of games. The season was improved by an end of season streak which saw 7 wins taken from the last 9 games, and eventually a 4th place was achieved. The winning run coincided with Ian Wallace's replacement by Jimmy Brown as manager, this following a suspension and subsequent internal investigation.

In the national cup competitions, it was a return to first round exits. In the Scottish Cup, Dumbarton lost to Livingston after a creditable drawn match.

In the League Cup, there was a disappointing first round defeat to Alloa Athletic.

Note that due to the lack of sponsorship, the Scottish Challenge Cup was not played.

Locally, in the Stirlingshire Cup, Dumbarton managed a draw from two ties and thus failed to reach the final.
