AN injury-time winner from new boy Stuart Tulloch sent 100 travelling Alsager Town fans into ecstasy as their team climbed to the dizzy heights of third in the First Division on Bank Holiday Monday.

The former Witton Albion player (pictured) was on hand to give the Bullets a third win of their first ever First Division campaign.

And manager Greg Clowes said it was just what his team deserved. He said: 'We just kept plugging away and we found an opening. We allowed them to keep possession which worked for us because we defended so well.

'We've always conceded very few goals and our impressive defending left our keeper with little to do. We keep doing well against teams who have been unbeaten before they play us which is great.' Despite now sitting in a play-off position after four matches, and conceding just one goal so far, Clowes says he will not judge the league until it is at least 10 games old.

He said: 'I've been very impressed with the quality of this league so far but I always knew we would be OK. We are keeping our feet firmly on the ground because although we've done well, we need to play better. There is more to come from us.'

Goals from Peter Heler and Paul Macari ensured a 2-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday. Alsager play Cheadle Town at Wood Park in an FA Cup preliminary round this Saturday. Kick-off is 3pm.
