Hyde United - home

Scarborough Athletic and Hyde United cancelled each other out in a tight opening day encounter.
 
Midfielder Jimmy Beadle had the first opportunity with a deflected effort tipped round the post by Peter Crook.
 
Home skipper Dave Merris then charged in from the left to fire in a drive from a narrow angle that was turned behind.
 
At the other end Hyde striker Tom Pratt planted a header over the bar when well placed.
 
A Luke Porritt snap shot was superbly tipped away by Boro keeper Taylor, before a penalty shout for the visitors was turned away as Boyle went over in the box. 
 
In the final stages the hosts pressed for a winner, with another shout for a spot-kick as sub Lewis Clarkson went down on the edge of the area, but again nothing was given as the two sides cancelled each other out.
