CALNE joint manager Ben Redford praised Stuart Windsor as “town through and through” after the forward’s late volley was enough to clinch an away win over league leaders Westbury.

The loyal servant was in commanding form as the Lilywhites made it four games unbeaten with a performance that belies their place near the foot of the Toolstation League First Division.

Windsor had a shot blocked with 10 minutes to go but followed up with a looping volley and the visitors held on as Westbury came out looking for an equaliser.

Redford said: “He’s been absolutely amazing the last three or four games.

“He’s scored five in four games and been superb. At the start of the season things were not going his way but in the last few games he’s shown what he’s capable of and that's the reason a lot of local clubs in the league have tried to sign him.

“They have offered him money whereas we pay nothing, but he’s dedicated to the team. He’s town through and through.”

Calne lie third from bottom in the league but in touch with the clubs immediately above and can be buoyed by claiming the pacemakers’ scalp on Saturday.

The hosts went a man down at Meadow Lane when Josh Ferguson was shown a red in the second half, but it was Windsor who provided the standout moment.

“We knew it was going to be a hard game,” Redford said.

“We went into it unbeaten in three and looking to get something out of it.

“Obviously we’d have been happy to go away with a point but we grew into it more and more and the red card changed it. I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.”

Four new signings at the end of September have enhanced the Lilywhites and triggered the current run, which will meet a stern test away at Cheddar on Saturday.

“The league’s funny,” Redford said. “On a bad day you can lose to anyone. The gap from the bottom to the middle of the table has been reduced massively and you only need two or three wins to climb five or six places.

“Obviously we want to be away from the relegation zone and we feel we’ve turned the corner and can push on into the top half.”

Elsewhere in the division, Corsham Town beat hosts Bishops Sutton 2-1, with Ben Wickens and Billy Cookson on target. Chippenham Park went down 4-2 to visitors Sherborne Town, Ryan Tyrell and Ben Pring netting for the Hardenhuish Park outfit, while Malmesbury Victoria lost 2-0 at Welton Rovers.
