King's Lynn 1, Stocksbridge 3

Lynn slumped to a miserable opening day Unibond Premier Division defeat against newly promoted Stocksbridge today at The Walks.

Gareth Sheldon fired Carl Heggs' men in front on four minutes with a close range finish but Brian Cusworth cancelled out Lynn's opener with a messy first half equaliser.

Alvin Riley and Richard Stirrup punished slack defending after the restart to stun a bumper 1,047.
