|2017–18||Scottish National League Division Two, 3rd of 12|
The first rugby club from Dumfries to be admitted to the SRU was Dumfries Rangers in 1876–77. The club re-emerged in 1901 as Dumfries (without the 'Rangers') and after a lapse was re-admitted to the SRU in 1923 as Dumfries RFC.
The club played at Downfield until 1939 and then at Marchfield and Summerhill. Then came a major turning point in 1953 when the club negotiated a deal to play at Park Farm.
The name Dumfries Saints was adopted to reflect the link to Saint Michael and the town crest which has always been used by the club.
