Inverness Caledonian Thistle have a new manager! After weeks of speculation, Billy Dodds has been confirmed as the new man in charge at the Caledonian Stadium, and we hear from both Dodds and ICT's chief executive officer Scot Gardiner about the appointment, what the dynamic between Dodds and sporting director John Robertson will be like and what the club's ambitions are for next season.
It has been all change in the playing squad at Ross County too, with 10 players getting released by the Staggies. They have started their recruitment drive though by adding Hamilton Academical star Ross Callachan to the squad - likely the first of several new signings this summer.
In the North Caledonian League, Alness United secured the Division Two title with a win over Inverness Athletic on Wednesday night at a game Will just about made it to in person, and that's not the only sporting action this summer as shinty, cricket, table tennis and road races are all returning.
