Carlton Morris played 79 minutes as Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury Town secured a dramatic opening day victory at home to Northampton Town.
Morris was replaced by Lenell John-Lewis with just over 10 minutes to play and the substitute fired home in stoppage time to make it a perfect start for the Shropshire club. Morris’s fellow City-loanee Ebou Adams was an unused substitute in the match.
In the Vanarama National League, Louis Ramsay notched up a full 90 minutes as he helped Woking to a 2-1 victory over Gateshead.
In Head Coach Anthony Limbrick’s first game in charge, the Cards got off to the perfect start on 18 minutes when Inih Effiong tapped in a rebound after goalkeeper James Montgomery saved his initial effort.
The north east club equalised eight minutes later from Danny Johnson's long-range strike but Woking regained the lead just before half-time through Joe Ward.
There were no goals in the second half as Ramsay played his part in a terrific defensive display from Limbrick’s men.
Meanwhile, Leyton Orient were without striker Tristan Abrahams as they were beaten 2-0 away to Sutton United.
Abrahams signed for the Canaries from Orient last week but has been loaned back to National League club for the rest of the season.
However, the 18-year-old was not in the squad for the east London club’s first competitive match since relegation from Sky Bet League Two last season.
Orient went behind when Jamie Collins scored from the penalty spot on 15 minutes and Dean Beckwith made sure of the points ten minutes before the break, bundling home Ross Lafayette's cross.
