Moulton Harrox warmed up for next week’s Lincolnshire FA Junior Cup final with a fifth successive win.

They face Hykeham Town on Wednesday night at Lincoln City’s Sincil Bank.

Harrox moved into third place in the Peterborough & District League Premier Division with a 3-1 midweek victory at Pinchbeck United.

On target were Macauley Grimwood, Joe Townsend and substitute Andrew Law.

Pinchbeck were beaten at home on Saturday as well when Sawtry overturned a half-time deficit to claim a 4-3 win.

Langtoft United finished their successful top-flight debut season in style by beating third-placed Stilton 1-0.

The Vikings have ended their campaign on a high with nine victories in 11 games securing their berth as the highest-placed of the four teams promoted from Division One last year.

Saturday’s win ended the visitors’ hopes of being crowned champions and it was striker Dan Evans who broke Stilton hearts with a superb individual goal.

The young striker picked the ball up inside his own half, outmuscled a defender and ghosted past another before smashing the ball home with his weaker left foot.

Langtoft manager Phil Gadsby said: “It was a great way to end, in my opinion, a fantastic season from the lads.

“We can hold our heads high this season.

“Stilton are a top side. The table doesn’t lie. To beat them home and away is a big achievement from us.

“I think we deserved to win, we had a strong shout for a penalty turned down at the end but then they probably should have had one in the first half so it evened itself out.”

Spalding United Reserves remain on top of Division Two after hitting Leverington Sports Reserves for six.

Doubles from Jamie Cartlidge and Jake Farrell were backed up by Matthew Rose and substitute Matthew Hempsall.
