Bracknell Town opened their Isthmian League Velocity Trophy group stage campaign with a 2-1 win over Buckinghamshire neighbours Marlow.

Boss Sam Lock sent out a strong eleven to face their Division One South Central rivals with a first start handed to new signing Marcus Mealing.

James Mulley opened the scoring for the Robins, firing home in the 24th minutes just inside the six yard box and Ousman Darboe made it 2-0 three minutes later with a strike from the edge of the penalty area.
