Barrow 1-0 Aldershot Town

Barrow debutant Liam Hughes got off to a flyer as his early goal was enough to beat Aldershot at Holker Street.

The midfielder rifled home from 15 yards after just seven minutes to earn Paul Cox's side a winning start to the new campaign.

The 23-year-old, who left Inverness in the summer, pounced after Aldershot failed to clear Jordan Williams' cross and his powerful strike hit the bar before going in, giving Jake Cole no chance.

Gary Waddock's side responded well, with Shamir Fenelon hitting a post after 14 minutes and Bernard Mensah going close on a number of occasions.

They played their part in a frenetic contest as both sides continued to push after the break, but the hosts did just enough to deny Waddock in his first game back in charge of Aldershot.
