....newcomers Hereford United and Macclesfield Town – both former members of the Football Conference.
And the TV viewers were treated to an entertaining encounter that the Edgar Street hosts edged by the odd goal in three.
In front of a crowd of 2,139, Sean Canham had the privilege of netting the opening goal of the new campaign when he gave the Bulls a 15th minute lead.
His header gave the home side a deserved half-time lead. However, around the hour-mark the Silkmen were back on level terms through Matthew Barnes-Homer.
But after 67 minutes Hereford were back in front when Marlon Jackson fired a terrific effort into the top corner of the net for what was a worthy winner.
