Kidsgrove emerged from the first game of the 2014/15 season with a point after a goalless draw with Goole.
In a game that lacked any real quality, it was the visitors who had the vast majority of chances to score, but poor finishing meant that the honours were shared.
Grove are next in action on Tuesday night when thy travel to the Lyme Valley Stadium for a derby clash against Newcastle Town.
Kidsgrove were handed tricky draws in both the FA Cup and FA Trophy when the draws were made at Wembley on Friday.
Athletic will travel to Evesham United in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup, with the winners hosting Redditch United. In the Trophy, a trip to Loughborough Dynamo awaits and whoever triumphs will have the pleasure of a visit from Grantham Town.
