VAUXHALL made a flying start to life in the UniBond Premier with a resounding victory over one of last season's top sides.
In front of their biggest ever league crowd new striker Terry Fearns was the hero after grabbing a hat-trick in just over an hour.
It gave the Rivacre Park club a three-goal lead which was only threatened when Worksop stole a second goal in the 89th minute.
All began well when the Motormen took the lead on 13 minutes with a classic strike. Peter Cuminsky teased his defender near the left-sided corner flag, delivering a cross to the far post where Robbie Lawton turned the ball back inside for Fearns to ram home his first from eight yards.
On the half hour mark, Vauxhall doubled their advantage when Lawton's corner from the left fell right into the six-yard box and Fearns applied the touch from close in.
There was no denying Motors a third as they threatened a strike from every attack. Kevin Thompson played a great ball to Cuminsky in the inside left position, he chested and played the ball off to the in-running Fearns and the striker blasted a sublime finish from 20 yards.
The game was 89 minutes old when Town substitute Andy Womble picked out Townsend and slid home the second Worksop goal from close in. But it was too little too late.
Vauxhall manager Alvin McDonald said: 'I'd have settled for any type of win at the start, but the quality of our play against an experienced UniBond Premier side like Worksop was tremendous.
'It's a fantastic start. By the early part of the second half Peter Cuminsky could have had a hat-trick, as well as Terry Fearns. In the past, we have never quite done ourselves justice when we've had a big crowd, but today they should have gone home impressed by the quality of our football and want to come back again.
'I think we were mentally tired near the end and conceded two sloppy goals.
'That's probably because we have given all the squad players half a game in pre-season and very few have gone through 90 minutes.
'I just don't know how far this side can go. I'm absolutely delighted.'
