    Burnley beat the Champions away, Blackburn bottom of the Third Division*.
    Years ago Blackburn were winning the First Division and around then Burnley were trying not to drop out of the league.

    *They will always be Leagues 1 - 4 to me, no matter what the money boys want them called. And Gigg lane will always be Gigg lane and not the No Energy Whatsoever Stadium (no matter how true that is). Grrr.

    Awful performance today, gifted Doncaster 3 goals. Not looking good.

    I'm definitely rooting for your guys in the Championship this season, many similarities between both club and town. A shame the so-called big boys in that league poached so many of your players in January.

    Bradford Park Avenue 0-5 York City

    My first match of the season and wow. 4-0 up at HT against a very dreadful BPA. Hopefully carry on the form from our last 2 games into a big match near the top vs Darlington.

    I know, it's really starting to show.

    Though at least you guys are starting off pretty good; 3 nil! And you've just entered the Premier League (though I can't remember if you've been in it before).

    Well, where to start? ;)

    Huddersfield Town were the first team to win the League Title 3 seasons in succession in the 1920s. A feat which only Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have matched and to this day nobody has beaten.

    We were last in the top division in 1972, being relegated after going winless since the turn of that year. So it is our first season in the marketing farce that is the Premier League, but not the first time we've been the top team in the land!

    Another good win for the newly reconstructed Dover Athletic team against a "BELT" (Big Ex-League Team) 1-0 over Wrexham.

    Local derby Tuesday evening - away to Halifax :roll:

    Another good win for Darlo v Alfreton coming from 1 -0 down to win 4-1! On to York on Tuesday night.

    Non league Hartlepooh United lost again v the might of Maindenhead. HAHAHAHAHA! in 5 years we have closed the gap from 5 divisions to 5 places. Not laughing now are you monkey boys? Mind the gap.

    Hartlepool might be doing a York if their form continues. Darlington and surprisingly Brackley setting the early form. Hopefully your good run comes to an end on Tuesday!

    Shortwood United 2...Winchester City 4 (L. Cox 77, Morris 89; Bailey 20, P. Cox 51, 56, 75)

    Winchester City looked to put the disappointment of last season behind them as they travelled to Meadowbank to face a Shortwood side who looked to be in transition. The first half was fairly even, with the hosts hitting the post, before new signing Oli Bailey put the visitors ahead after running on to a long ball. Rob Flooks came close to doubling the lead as his header hit the post and Andy Jenkinson saw his effort ruled out for offside as City began to dominate. The second half saw City dominate as Pat Cox hit two in five minutes before completing his hat trick with fifteen minutes to go. Shortwood got back into the game with two consolation goals as the visitors took their foot off the gas but by then the points were secure, ensuring a very good start to the season.

    Other Results:

    AFC Totton 3...Barnstaple Town 1

    Bideford 1...Didcot Town 0

    Cinderford Town 1...Swindon Supermarine 1

    Cirencester Town 0...Taunton Town 2

    Kidlington 2...Yate Town 2

    Larkhall Athletic 2...Evesham United 2

    Mangotsfield United 0...Salisbury 5

    North Leigh 2...Bristol Manor Farm 5

    Paulton Rovers 1...Slimbridge 2

    Wimborne Town 3...Bishops Cleeve 1


    And in Wessex Division 1:

    Alton 8 (EIGHT)...Ringwood Town 4

    Hartlepool's new manager is from the Welsh League. Why did their board think that would be a good idea?

    Awful attendance on Bradford's part. Just seen 845 away fans, 150 Bradford Season tickets sold. Not helped by Bradford councils insistence on making today's game all ticket. Sounds like Bradford's performance matched their support.

    Good following from York though.

    Brackley have a good team and have gone about their business very quietly over the last couple of seasons and tend to be a little under the radar. They finished 7th last season 3 points behind us in the last play off spot.

    I will take a draw on Tuesday v a professional team away from home.

    I am more than happy that such a difficult away match saw Hyde United achieve a goal-less draw there on Saturday.

    Leeds' new boss came from the Cypriot league, and much as it pains me to say it they look decent this season.
