ROB Hope was happy with his team’s start to the new Division One campaign.
After a cagey opening 20 minutes, Eagle got into their stride with Owen Ellis hitting the woodwork before Chris Quirk headed home a Lee Boardman free kick.
Eagle started to dominate but McDermott had to be alert in the Eagle goal to keep Whaley at bay on the counter attack.
Whaley started the second half brightly but Richard Chinn doubled Eagle’s lead, heading home a Craig Bishop cross-shot.
Eagle controlled the remainder of the game and were unlucky not to add to their total by the end.

NEW Eagle manager Kevin Barber suffered his first defeat.
Goals from James Maher and Iain Strachan left the game poised at 2-2 in the second half but a missed penalty proved costly before some slack defending and tiredness crept in to allow the Derbyshire side to take the three points.
