Cadbury Athletic 0 - 1 Hinckley AFC
The new season kicked off for Atletico with a win away at Cadbury Athletic, featuring 5 players making their debuts for the club.

In glorious sunshine AFC showed off their new kit, with Jack Hartopp most splendent in his pink keepers top, and 5 of the starting players were wearing the colours competitively for the first time. In defence Liam Smith, Jamie Newton and Jean Kalenda were at left back, right back and centre back respectively, whilst in midfield Neil MacKenzie and Javia Roberts were in the centre and wide right.

The game itself was a very tight affair with few chances for either side, Atletico had the better chances of the first half and Cadbury the better chances of the second half. Nathan Walker saw his chipped effort come back off the crossbar and Luke Richards had a long range effort drift wide of the goal before Marco Adaggio gave Hinckley the lead right on half time. Richards original driving shot was parried by Shaun Hayes, but Adaggio was quickest to react and headed the ball into the net.

The second half saw Cadbury as slightly the better team and they created more work for Hartopp, and one save towards the end of the game was as good as a goal. Ryan Spink evaded the AFC back line to get on the end of a cross in the goal area, and Hartopp spread himself to deny the Cadbury midfielder at point blank range.

A low key start of the season but ultimately three points away in a tricky opening game.
