Burton Park Wanderers 0 Potton United 2
Saturday, 25 August 2012
After their opening day thrashing at Oadby another trip posed a test of character for Potton - and Darren Staniforth's men rose to the challenge.
Two of the Royals' summer signings came up with the vital goals at Latimer Park.
Alex Taylor made the breakthrough on the half hour, scoring from the spot after being fouled, with substitute Gary Ansell-Carter sealing the victory with a second visiting goal after 68 minutes, tapping in after Steve Muggridge and Joe Aris combined.
In between Burton had the bulk of the game but found visiting keeper Chris Williscroft in fine form. while Danny Hockridge struck the post for Park Wanderers.
