GOAL OF THE WEEKEND: Mamadou Thiam – Barnsley

Plymouth Argyle didn't get the start they wanted, losing 2-1 at Walsall on the opening day, but there was a fantastic moment as Ryan Edwards netted on his first game back since getting the all-clear from cancer.

Crewe Alexandra were the biggest winners on the opening weekend, hitting Morecambe for six. Alex Nicholls and James Jones scored two apiece in a memorable performance.
