Jamie Bettison scored the United consolation.

Armthorpe Markham Main had to settle for a consolation by Gary Smith when going down by the odd goal in three at home to AFC Bentley.

A Pete Walmsley hat trick helped lay the foundations for Rum Rooms Legacy’s 5-0 win at the other promoted club Brodsworth Welfare.

Dunscroft United also got off to a winning start, beating Kinsley Boys by the odd goal in five.

Hemsworth Town had to settle for a 42nd minute consolation goal by Nathan Young when going down 5-1 at home to Bawtry Town, who led 3-1 at the break, in the only Division One game played.
