Nick Chadwick headed a late equaliser as Dietmar Hamann's new-look Stockport began life in the Blue Square Bet Premier with a draw at Forest Green.
Only goalkeeper Matthew Glennon remained from the side that finished the Hatters' League Two campaign.
Forest Green deservedly went ahead when Reece Styche headed in James Rowe's free-kick from six yards.
But with time running out Chadwick earned a point when he headed in a Euan Holden cross from close range.
