Teddy Sheringham watched his son Charlie score for Ebbsfleet United on Tuesday night.
The former England striker was among the guests in the directors box at Stonebridge Road as the Fleet opened their Vanarama Conference South campaign with a 2-0 win over Concord Rangers.
Charlie, 26, scored nine minutes from the end of his Fleet debut to seal the win.
It wasn't a vintage Ebbsfleet performance but manager Steve Brown was just pleased to get off to a winning start - having waited until October for his first home league win last season.
Brown said: "Getting three points on the board is massive and I know that we’re only going to get sharper, fitter, stronger and our mentality’s going to be where it should be.
"I’m delighted that we’ve come out of that with a 2-0 win because I know there’s massive improvements to be made from that team going forward.
"You have to give Concord credit. I thought they frustrated us.
"I said (to the players) at half-time 'they’re frustrating you and you're letting yourselves become too open and then you’re making rash decisions.'
"I thought we sorted that. I don’t remember too many clear-cutters in the second half, but towards the last 15 minutes of the first half we were way too open, allowing them far too much play and that’s when the opportunities come.
"You’ve seen us play way better than that – and we’ve still come out with the 2-0 victory."
