Macclesfield Town 2-0 Torquay United

Ollie Norburn marked his Macclesfield debut with a stunning volley as Torquay were beaten 2-0 at Moss Lane.

Norburn's sweet strike from outside the area gave Gulls goalkeeper Brendan Moore no chance as the ball flew into the top corner with 24 minutes on the clock.

Chris Holroyd confirmed victory on 65 minutes with a second memorable goal as his fierce strike went in off the crossbar.
