He featured in the navy blue midfield again in a reserve league match, also against United.

The 25-year-old spent time with Chelsea and Brighton as a youth, and despite making an FA Cup appearance for the Seagulls, left on loan for Exeter.

Spells followed with Oldham and Swindon, where he scored five times in 68 matches, before he pitched up at Hungerford Town.

He left the National League South side after a lack of game time but rejoined the Crusaders just two months after leaving.

Rodgers spent time on trial with Peterborough during the summer, plaing in a handful of pre-season friendlies.

Falkirk slumped to a 5-1 defeat against United at St Andrews on Monday afternoon, with Tom Owen-Evans was on target for the Bairns.
