Maidenhead United’s flying start to the Vanarama National League season ended on Saturday when they were beaten 1-0 at York Road by Hartlepool United who picked up their first points of the season.
The goal came in the 53rd minute from Niko Muir who managed to beat Magpies goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond on the rebound.
In the National League South, it was a third defeat for Slough Town who conceded a third minute goal at Concord Rangers only for Ben Harris to equalise after half time.

There were strong words from both Neil Baker and Jon Underwood after the game which was notable for the second half debut of Joe Grant.
