For the third season in a row, Alfreton Town were away to open the new campaign, and for the third season in a row, they returned pointless.
This time the Reds went down 1-0 at Dartford in Skrill Premier action, striker Adam Birchall providing the only goal of the game on 42 minutes.
Paul Clayton had the ball in the home net just before half time but was ruled offside.
There were six debutants in the Alfreton starting line-up and two more made their debut from the bench in the second half.
Tuesday evening brings Alfreton's first home game of the 2013/14 season when Kidderminster Harriers provide very attractive opposition at the Impact Arena. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
