The most significant developments in Scottish League One during January revolved around the managerial merry-go-round.

Ayr United appointed former Dundee United and Partick Thistle boss Ian McCall to replace Mark Roberts.

Meanwhile, former Scotland striker Scott Booth was axed by Stenhousemuir as the two sides battle to avoid relegation.

John Potter, who took over from Jim Jefferies at Dunfermline Athletic in December, was among the busiest in the transfer market as he attempts to revive the pre-season favourites' faltering promotion challenge.
