Staveley opened their Northern Counties East Premiership campaign with a 1-0 victory at Brighouse.
The Inkersall Road men went ahead in the 42nd minute through Ryan Damms.
The Staveley striker side-footed home from a very narrow angle following a pass across the face of the Brighouse goal from Martin Foster.
A minute later Damms rattled a Brighouse post before the half-time whistle sounded.
Staveley were on top early in the second half but the home team rallied with long ball tactics.
The Wefare men were happy to finish the day with three points and a clean sheet.
