With football returning up and down the country yesterday, let’s take a look at the results in the National League South, following the Glovers 1-0 defeat to Hemel Hempstead.

There were goals in every single game in the division on matchday 1, and it was newly-promoted Truro City that scored the most, winning 5-2 against Welling United. There was a goalfest east of London, with Dartford having to settle for a 3-3 draw with 10-man Bath City, courtesy of a 95th minute equaliser from Jordan Thomas.

Torquay United kicked off their return to the 6th tier with a 2-2 draw against Dover Athletic, whilst Maidstone United made a winning return to the division, defeating Slough Town by a score of 2-1.

There were more 2-1 results for sides local to Yeovil, with Taunton defeating Braintree Town and Weymouth falling to next week’s visitors, St Albans.

Plenty of tight games throughout the division, with Chelmsford beating Farnborough 1-0, and Chippenham Town beating NLS debutants Aveley 1-0. Eastbourne Borough made a winning start as a professional outfit, beating Hampton & Richmond 1-0, while Weston-super-mare and Worthing also ran out 1-0 winners, against Havant & Waterlooville and Tonbridge Angels respectively.
