Witham Town kicked off life under new manager Marc Benterman in spectacular fashion with a 3-0 win at Hullbridge Sports in their opening BetVictor Isthmian League division north game.

First-half goals from George Bugg, Marcus Bowers and Ollie Emsden wrapped up a wonderful win for Benterman's new-look Witham team and photographer Jim Purtill was there to capture the action.

Witham will now be looking to build on their superb start when they have their first home league game at the newly-named Simarco Stadium on Tuesday night.

Bury Town will be the visitors as Benterman's team look for a second early win (kick-off 7.45pm).
