AC Marstons failed to score at home as well, going down 6-0 to CI FC.
Paul Oliver netted a hat-trick, Josh Bromley hit the target with a header, Keith Davies also scored and Bruce Davies fired in a top corner 30-yard screamer.
Basingstoke Saints started off their season with a fine 6-2 home win against promoted Overton United. Alan Butler and Rick Pike contributed hat-tricks for the home side, with replies from Tom Mears and Nathan Rae.
