York City remain the early pacesetters in the Vanarama National League North after they defeated visiting Leamington 2-0 on Saturday. The bookmakers favourites for the title have dropped only two points so far this season.

Indeed, City are one of only four clubs who remain unbeaten after the opening round of five matches.

Chester are the second club with an unbeaten record so far. They despatched Gloucester City easily 4-0 at the Deva Stadium.

Gateshead have yet to lose, securing a good 2-1 win at Kettering Town on Saturday, however, they have drawn 4 of their five games to date.

Boston were held to a 1-1 draw as Guiseley retained second spot in the divisional table.

Three clubs are locked on 10 points, with Hereford moving up a place following their 1-0 away success at Croft Park against hosts Blyth Spartans. King’s Lynn Town maintained their good start with a 3-1 away win at the New Bucks Head against Telford.

Blyth’s loss means they remain at the foot of the table, and are yet to gain a single point, but Bradford Park Avenue are only a point above them, and lost 4-0 at Alfreton. Bradford have now conceded 18 goals in five matches.
