Letheren knows new boss, Paul Hartley, from his days at Dundee and the pair link-up again.

“I am delighted to join the club,” Letheren said. “I know the manager really well and we enjoyed a successful spell back at Dundee. I am looking forward to supporting the goalkeeping team and helping the team the best I can.”

Hartley added: “'He is someone I know well from my time at Dundee. A good goalkeeper with good experience and I know he’s going to work well with Ben (Killip) and the rest of the group. He has the qualities and attributes to be a great goalkeeping coach and I know how excited he is to get started.”
