Langtoft United reached the PFA Senior Cup final for the first time in dramatic fashion on Saturday.

The Vikings pipped Division One title favourites Stamford Lions at windswept Manor Way with a last-gasp goal from substitute Jamie Warner.

Warner netted following a 90th-minute long throw to book a date at Peterborough United’s ABAX Stadium against holders Whittlesey Athletic.

Their semi-final against ICA Sports was also hampered by strong winds before the favourites emerged 2-0 winners with second-half strikes from Sam Donohoe and Liam Harrold.

The final is scheduled for early May.

Whittlesey manager Andy Lodge said: “Fair play to Langtoft for reaching their first final. It was our first final last season and we loved every minute of it so I’m sure they will as well.”
