Division 1 – 10th Place For New Man

The 1919/20 season was the 47th season of competitive football in Scotland and the 30th season of the Scottish Football League. The number of teams in the Scottish League was increased from 18 to 22.

Those clubs who were asked to retire for geographical reasons at the end of the 1916/17 season – Aberdeen, Dundee and Raith Rovers – returned, while Albion Rovers were elected.

Successful manager John Cameron left the club due to ill health heralding he reign of James McDonald. He took over and continued to build on the previous season’s success.

A successful 10th place finish out of an increased league was obtained with fine wins such as a 5-1 win over Falkirk and a 5-0 home thrashing of neighbours Kilmarnock.

The season was dented by a 7-1 defeat by Dundee.
