As the second round of fixtures kicked-off, many teams were desperate to get their first points of the season, which led to an exciting evening of football.

Lancaster City made it two wins from two when they came from 2-0 down at half-time to beat Burscough 3-2 thanks to an Edward Pelger own goal and goals from Josh Draycott and Tom Kilfin. Bamber Bridge beat Clitheroe 2-1 Matty May scoring a thunderous shot from 25 yards out. Clitheroe dominated the second half but could only manage one goal thanks to a close range header from Adam Freeland. Droylsden were brought back down to earth after their 7-1 thrashing of Bamber Bridge as a goal on the stroke of half-time was enought to give New Mills all three points.

Scarborough Athletic came from 2-1 down to beat Harrogate Railway 3-2 thanks to two late goals from James Beadle. The winner was a controversial penalty with defender Thirkell adjudged to have brought down Beadle in the box, even though the tackle seemed to be just outside. To add insult to injury Thirkell received a straight red card. Farsley got their first three points of the season thanks to a dramatic late winner from Gibraltar international Adam Priestley after Aaron Hardy gave them the lead from the spot before Chris Ovington headed home from close range to equalise.

Elsewhere Padiham defeated Kendal Town 2-1, Northwich beat Mossley 1-0, league newcomers Brighouse beat Ossett Albion 2-1, Radcliffe beat Prescot 3-1, Darlington won 2-0 away to Spennymoor and potential league winners Salford defeated Warrington 2-0 .
