East Stirlingshire have lost striker Andy Rodgers to Ayr United but secured goalkeeper Michael Andrews on loan from neighbours Falkirk until January.Shire had wanted Jamie Barclay for a third loan spell, but the Bairns rejected that approach and instead gave them 20-year-old youth cap Andrews. [LNB]Rodgers, 26, scored 14 goals for Shire last season and Ayr will hope he can take the step up to Division Two. [LNB]He previously had spells with Falkirk, Montrose and Dumbarton. [LNB]Brian Reid, whose side were relegated from Division One last season, told his club website: "Andy adds some good experience to the squad and I'm confident he will score goals at this level. [LNB]"He has done well at his previous clubs and he is a player I have thought should have been playing at a higher level."
