Barnstaple Town produced the perfect performance for manager Tom Bulley as they started the Toolstation Western League season with an 8-1 win.
Ryan Turner scored a hat-trick, Maksym Kowal got two and there was one each for Lee Francis, Billy Tucker and Scott Sharp.
Bulley could find no fault in a dominant display against a team who finished fourth in the First Division last season.
He said: “I couldn’t praise them enough. There was nothing wrong with that performance whatsoever.
“It was a fantastic start and it is only going to get better.”
Barnstaple play their first away match on Wednesday against Chard Town (7.30pm) before a home FA Cup tie against Brislington on Saturday, which will be filmed by ITV West Country.
