Alfie Jones made his Gillingham debut and played the duration of their 1-1 draw at Doncaster Rovers in League One.

The Gills, who are now under the stewardship of Steve Evans, took the lead on half hour mark through Alex Jakubiak, before Kieran Sadlier’s impressive volley earned a share of the spoils.

Elsewhere, Tyreke Johnson made his first appearance for Woking as they opened up their National League campaign with a 2-0 success away at Dagenham & Redbridge.

Johnson replaced Dave Tarpey on 77 minutes as goals from Kane Ferdinand and Moussa Diarra sealed all three points.

In League Two, Jack Rose was made to wait for his Walsall bow as Darrell Clarke made a winning start to life as the Saddlers boss.

Rose was an unused substitute as summer signing James Clarke’s header from former Saint Danny Guthrie’s corner proved the difference in a 1-0 victory at Northampton Town.

In the National League South, young midfielder Harry Hamblin played 45 minutes as Bath City recorded a 2-0 victory over Braintree Town at Twerton Park.
