Salisbury 0-1 Tamworth
Salisbury City failed to secure a happy return to the Conference Premier as they were beaten at home by Tamworth.
Wayne Thomas scored the game's only goal, heading in a Lloyd Kerry cross from close range.
But Tamworth keeper Cameron Belford was twice called on to preserve his team's lead.
Before the break he pushed a long-range effort away and came to the Lambs' rescue again 10 minutes from time when he dealt with Ben Wright's strike.
