Mel Mattless’ men were handed a 3-0 defeat by Holland FC on their maiden Thurlow Nunn First Division outing on Saturday afternoon.

Essex-based Holland hit the ground running thanks to Thomas Holstock’s brace and a strike from Keelan Sornell at the GER.

March, who were one of only six sides to begin their campaign on Satuday, will hope to bounce back instantly when they host Downham Town tomorrow evening (7.45pm).
