BEN Brown scored North Leigh’s first goal as a step-three club in their 2-1 opening-day defeat at Dorchester Town.

The defender found the net in the 52nd minute to make history for the Millers.

Ex-Portsmouth forward Alfie Stanley put the hosts 2-0 up in the first quarter of the Pitching In Southern League Premier South clash.

North Leigh rallied after the break and Brown halved the deficit, but they could not find an equaliser.
