Alex Newby committed his future to Atrincham then set his sights on creating history with them ahead of a crucial Vanarama National League fixture with promotion rivals Solihull Moors on Saturday.
In another significant breakthrough that further boosts Alty's chances of reaching the play-offs, in-form winger Newby turned his loan spell from Colchester United into a permanent transfer shortly after again being on the scoresheet in a resounding 4-0 win over Eastleigh.
As he prepared for his first appearance as a fully-fledged Robin, away to a team who are one place above them in fourth position, the 28-year old outlined some of the reasons for readily accepting Alty's contract offer, not least the enticing prospect of helping them over the line in their pursuit of a first-ever promotion to the Football League.
"We've got a chance to make history, and if we can get promoted to League Two, it's going to be massive for everyone at the club and the whole town," he said.
"I've chipped in with a few goals and assists during the loan spell, so I'm delighted with that and determined to add a few more between now and the end of the season.
"Really, it was quite an easy decision to make the move permanent after the way things have gone. The fans have been brilliant and made me feel very welcome, and when you get that love and appreciation from the fan base, you want to give them something back."
Newby has become an integral part of an increasingly potent Alty forward line that put seven goals past Barnet and Eastleigh in recent weeks and helped salvage a 2-2 draw away to second-placed Bromley, where the winger's spectacular late free-kick secured a deserved point.
"It's great playing with the other lads up front, because there is so much quality and we complement each other quite well," he added. "The goal at Bromley was special for me, because it looked like we were going to end up empty-handed, but there have been lots of moments to remember.
"Chris Conn-Clarke playing me through for the opening goal inside the first minute against Barnet was another. He just gave me a look and delivered the free-kick into my path without saying anything, and that's just an example of the understanding we have.
"We're all on the same wavelength in terms of seeing each other's runs, and it makes it so enjoyable playing with such good players."
Alty have bolstered their defensive options by signing 19-year old centre-back Sonny Aljofree from Manchester United on loan for the rest of the season.
