Jobi Froud scored twice against his former club Crowland Town on Saturday as Langtoft United tasted victory for the first time in 2015.
The Vikings’ 3-2 win away to the Peterborough and District League’s Premier Division’s bottom club ended a run of five straight defeats in league and cup from a tough run of fixtures.
The result also marked the first league double they have completed over an opponent since their promotion to the top division for the first time last season.
The first goal came from a corner which was cleared to the edge of the box where Froud returned the ball with interest past the keeper.
Froud was on the mark again before half-time when he headed home a cross to the far post.
Dan Evans made it 3-0 in the second half when he saw the keeper off his line and lobbed him from outside the box.
Crowland replied with late goals from James Ellwood and Teddy Paling, but were unable to stop the points returning to Manor Way.
Langtoft assistant-boss James Goode, who oversaw the victory in manager Phil Gadsby’s absence, said: “It’s great to get back to winning ways after a tough run of games.
“It was disappointing to concede two late goals but it was a good overall performance from the team, especially from our midfielders Nicky Butler and Mark Hynes.”
This Saturday the first team entertain Holbeach United Reserves.
Meanwhile, a second-half double from Ian Bradbury earned victory for Moulton Harrox at Oakham United who were duly knocked off the top of table with Coates Athletic replacing them on goal-difference.
Pinchbeck United had James Doughty and Tom Brooks sent off in their 5-4 defeat away to Leverington Sports.
