The big-money signing goes straight into the starting XI at New Meadow for the league curtain-raiser.

Gareth Evans gets the nod to starting in the 10 position in front of Brett Pitman in the Blues’ 4-2-3-1 formation.

Paul Downing, Ross McCrorie and Marcus Harness are the other starting debuts with fellow new boys Ellis Harrison and James Bolton on the bench.
