Bottesford christened their new clubhouse with a win on the opening day of the North Leicestershire League on Saturday.

Goals from Owen Park, Jak Velinksy and substitute Tom Richardson helped the hosts to a convincing 3-0 win over Loughborough United in Division One.

And Bottesford made it a double over United in Division Three with a 2-1 away win in the meeting of the club’s reserves.

Melton-based side CK Dons hit the ground running in Division Two with a 6-2 win at Ravenstone United.

Tom Figura scored twice, while Ant Bowdery, Mark Gray, Kiel Stewart and Kemal Yenibertiz also got on the scoresheet for the Dons, who finished fourth last season as Clawson Kings.

Newly-promoted Asfordby Development also got off to a good start as Charlie Richards’ strike gave them a 1-0 win at home to Greenhill YC A.
