Welling United 1-0 Guiseley

Sahr Kabba
Sahr Kabba's strike was his first-ever goal in the National League

Guiseley's first-ever game in the top tier of non-league football ended in defeat at Welling United.

Zac Thompson pulled a decent effort wide for the visitors early on before Sahr Kabba got what was the winner.

Kevin Lokko headed a cross back across goal and Kabba reacted quickest to tap the ball home.

Michael Chambers could have doubled Welling's lead before the break, but he headed over from point-blank range, and was denied again 11 minutes from time.
