Pinchbeck United’s home game against Langtoft United was abandoned on Saturday due to a serious injury to goalkeeper Joe Ashton.

The Vikings led 2-1 when the Premier Division game was halted 10 minutes into the second half following a clash of heads between Ashton and Josh Hales.

Thomas Retzlaff had struck twice for Langtoft.

Ashton has recovered with Pinchbeck’s Twitter account describing his injuries as ‘mild concussion, a headache and sore pride’.

Deeping Rangers Reserves inflicted Netherton United’s first league defeat for 11 months as Connor Pilbeam and Antonio Dello Russo were on target in a 2-1 away win.

Moulton Harrox smashed Crowland Town 14-0 as Joe Townsend (6) and Marcus Parry (5) led the rout.
