Neil Tooth's first game in charge of Sutton Coldfield Town ended in victory as the Royals defeated Newcastle Town.
The Royals claimed their third win of the season at the weekend
Goals in either half from Luke Chapman and Joel Kettle were enough to give the well-organised Royals their second home win of the season, and ensure that Tooth's reign got off to the perfect start.
Sutton were on the front foot from the off, causing problems down both wings as they looked to make home advantage count.
Just before half time, the pressure finally told as Chapman scored with a well-taken free kick from just outside the penalty area.
Tooth's men continued to apply the pressure int he second half, and should have extended their lead long before Kettle nodded home the second with ten minutes left.
The Royals now sit in tenth position in the league after notching their third win, and face a short trip to play Chasetown tomorrow evening.
