THATCHAM Town fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat against Yate Town at Waterside Park on the opening day of the Southern League Division 1 South season.
A Nick Peare strike 12 minutes from time separated the two sides - who both had a man sent off.
Scott Rees was dismissed for the Kingfishers minutes into the second half for violent conduct on Joe Guest off the ball while Adam Price was sent off for kicking out at Gareth Thomas.
Despite Thatcham's best efforts, they couldn't start the new campaign with a win.
