The 2005–06 Scottish First Division was won by St Mirren.
Allan Jenkins scored the Stranraer winner on a 2 January South West relegation derby leaving Queen of the South firmly in the play off spot that was ninth place. However Jenkins was sold to Gretna 10 days later. Stranraer's league form imploded immediately recording only one other league win from then until the season's end. Queens over hauled Stranraer who subsequently lost in a relegation playoff Semi-Final to be relegated along with Brechin City to the Scottish Second Division.
