Falkirk Stadium is home to two football clubs, but NO permanent football managers.

Paul Hartley parted ways with Falkirk on Monday and last night East Stirlingshire announced the departure of John Sludden and Martin Mooney.

The Lowland League side slipped down the table on Wednesday with a 3-2 home defeat from Vale of Leithen.

Captain Derek Ure and record goalscorer Andy Rodgers will take over the reins for the visit of Edusport Academy on Saturday.

Sludden and Mooney arrived at Shire to replace Craig Tully in the aftermath of the club’s drop out of the senior set-up and into the Lowland League two years ago. They had previously worked together at Camelon.

However the duo failed to lift the club back into the SPFL League Two set-up prompting a change in manager which co-incides with their landlords’ search for a new boss.
