HUNTINGDON Town came from behind to deliver an opening-day win for the new management team of Al Lenihan and Pat O'Keefe.
The win didn't come without cost as defender Chris Lenton was given his marching orders late in the game but Town stood firm to take home the points.
O'Keefe was especially pleased with the way his team had stuck to their task after falling two goals behind.

"Our two defensive mistakes were punished. At the break we just told them to hang on in there, and we definitely got stronger as the match went on and we deserved the win in the end."
Kempston's Walnut Boys made the brighter start, taking a second-minute lead through Kofi Schulz. Strike partner Aaron Baldwin doubled the advantage twelve minutes before the break after getting the better of keeper Dave Beeny in a one-on-one.

The new management duo has brought in several new faces but it was one of the Town old boys that got the team moving after the break.
Gary Marheineke started the fight-back on 49 minutes, collecting a Jason Attoe pass and beating keeper Daniel Green with an audacious forty yard lob.
Huntingdon found a new lease of life, and new recruit Ian Fovargue equalised from the penalty spot after 65 minutes following a foul on Dwayne Rankin.
The comeback was complete three minutes from time when Chris Brown secured all three points for Huntingdon, beating two defenders and netting with a curling shot.
