VETERAN striker Gary Bull made history yet again for Boston Town - notching his 200th goal for the club.

Bull’s landmark finish came from the penalty spot in Saturday’s victory at AFC Kempston Rovers, also proving to be the matchwinning goal.

The former Nottingham Forest striker’s first game for Boston was on August 16, 2005, against Harrowby.

Boston won in style on that day, Bull netting four times in a 7-0 victory.

Bull, 45, is the all-time leading goalscorer for Town and broke the club’s record for goals in a season when he chalked up 57 in the 2006-07 season, smashing the previous Club record of 47 held by Carl Smaller.

Bull also won the UCL Top Goal Scorer’s Trophy for that season.

Bull rightfully took the plaudits on Saturday, but the victory also saw Town break their recent poor run.

Both teams put together periods of flowing football, but the final decisive ball eluded each set of forwards in the opening first quarter.

Boston finally made the break-through following a run across the Kempston box by Paul Jones, who was fouled.

After seeing a spot kick saved against Deeping Rangers last month, Bull made no mistake, slotting home number 200 for the club.

This gave the Poachers the lift they needed, but to the credit of the home side, they also upped their game, but squandered several good chances due to poor finishing.

Town’s keeper, Chris Wright, pulled of a couple of very impressive saves to maintain the Boston lead.

There were also promising debuts for Kieran Rose and Brodie Blankly for the Poachers.

TOWN: Wright, Rose, Kirton, Blankly, Wood, Brooks, Borbely, Jones (Ruck), Bull (Brown), Shahin, Foster.

Star man: Chris Wright. Safe hands and an inspiration.
