The G Men could have won by a bigger margin but for an excellent debut performance in the St Austell goal by Jason Chapman,

The former Falmouth keeper pulled off a brilliant save to deny Mark Rose from the penalty spot after 53 minutes, and also made a string of fine saves throughout the game.

Newquay launched their season under new manager Alan Carey with a 3-1 win at Liskeard, while Reg Hambly's Camelford beat Elburton Villa 2-1 at Trefrew Park.

Title favourites Plymouth Parkway came from 1-0 down to beat Falmouth 5-2 at Bickland Park with former Bodmin left back Luke Rundle scoring twice.
