Deeping Rangers 1 Thrapston Town 0
Saturday, 13 August 2011
Thrapston provided stern opposition for Rangers at Outgang Road but ultimately came off second best.
The visitors were close to an early goal but the woodwork denied Jamie Russell a 25 yard opener.
Josh Moreman's 26th minute debut goal, a far post header after a good run and cross by Mark Jones, proved sufficient to make it a winning start for Deeping.
Tony Battersby also netted for Rangers but was ruled offside.
