CALLUM Saunders made the best first impression possible as he helped Witton Albion to their first league victory of the season.

The striker, who joined from Nantwich Town yesterday, scored a brace on debut as Carl Macauley's side won 2-1 at Morpeth Town, with the winning goal coming five minutes after half time.

Saunders had dragged Witton back onto level terms on 13 minutes, shortly after Jeff Henderson had given the hosts an early lead.

The result allows Albion to climb off the foot of the Northern Premier League Premier Division table and they are replaced by their opponents, whose manager Stephen Turnbull resigned from his role after the game.

Macauley's side will hope to back up this result when they travel to Matlock Town on Tuesday.
