He was joined by his new assistant manager Richie Brittain and new club coach Don Cowie, as well as sports scientist Liam Dukes. They were under strict orders to maintain a two-metre distance at all times.

After bouncing back to the top flight at the first time of asking, County picked up league wins over Hamilton, St Mirren and Motherwell – and a point at Hearts – before the end of September.

A slump before Christmas saw them slide down the table, but even though the Staggies were often considered to be in a relegation battle before the season was curtailed, eventually finishing third from bottom, at no point were they in either of the relegation positions.

Some players have had their first taste of Premiership football over the last year, so with that experience behind them Kettlewell is looking for County to aim higher than 10th next time around.
