This proved a baptism of fire for the promoted Walnut Boys as their new look squad faced up to one of the title favourites.
Luke Pritchard gave the Doughboys the lead after 18 minutes after a good run and pass from Mike Sneddon, and they sealed their opening day success with two further goals in the second half.
Jon Mitchell scored Wellingborough's second goal after 69 minutes after Ainge powered through a series of tackles, with new signing Richard Thompson opening his Doughboys goal account five minutes from time, controlling and finishing well after Alfie Taylor and Mitchell combined on the right.
