By Sam Elliott

Grimsby Town have made a great start to life outside of the EFL again and Paul Hurst’s team showed everyone they mean business.

They came from behind to win 3-1 at Torquay United, pictured. Harry Clifton making the game safe in time added on.

Boreham Wood have had a blistering start and a fourth win from five was earned at Bromley.

Tyrone Marsh’s late, late winner sending them to the summit for a few hours at least.

But it’s Dagenham & Redbridge who stay top - Myles Weston inspired a 2-1 win at King’s Lynn Town, live on BT Sport.

Yeovil Town stunned Stockport County as Joe Quigley scored again - the Glovers return home with a 3-0 win.

Chesterfield had to settle for a 0-0 draw at Dover Athletic.

It was frustrating for Notts County too as Weymouth bit back through Andy Robinson to earn a 1-1 draw.

Over 8,000 saw Wrexham beat Woking 1-0, the winning arriving from Jordan Davies.

Wealdstone got their first win - and it came 11 minutes into injury time!
