Gainsborough Trinity made a dream start to the season with a fine 2-0 victory over Hyde United, with a goal in each half.
Reco Fyfe scored midway through the first half and Gregg Smith doubled the Trinity tally on sixty six minutes to take the sting out of a spirited Tigers comeback.
AJ Greaves went straight into the starting eleven following his one month loan spell from Doncaster Rovers and immediately looked at home with an all action display at the heart of the Trinity midfield.
Hyde started the game on the front foot, but as the Holy Blues settled, Gregg Smith opened up the play with a clever switched ball & Reco Fyfe combined well with Lewis Collins on the left, with the former Ilkeston Town man cutting in onto his right foot and planting an effort beyond Joe Green to settle the home side’s nerves.
In a mad few moments, the goalkeeper then blocked a point-blank header from Tom Pratt before Woolford went close, rifling an effort wide from twenty yards, just before Smith doubled the lead.
Fyfe and Collins combined again to tee up the Trinity number nine, to open his account, giving Green no chance with a header from eight yards out.
