Langtoft made a flying start to life in the ChromaSport & Trophies Peterborough League Premier Division.

The villagers won their first ever game at the top level on Saturday beating visitors Peterborough Sports Reserves 4-2 with goals by Daniel Evans, Talal Karama, Sam Thompson and Callum Fox. Luke Elsom and Sean Samuels replied for Sports.

The Vikings Reserves, also playing in a higher league this season - the PDFL Division One - had a tougher afternoon, losing 7-1 at Stanground.

The Langtoft goal was scored by Moddy Santaniello, assist by Kyle Scott.

The game started off well for the Reserves and they went 1-0 up after 5 minutes. But the hosts equalised 10 minutes later with a lucky lob over the keeper and went up a few gears and after some naive defending from Langtoft scored four goals in 10 minutes to kill the game off.

The second half was much more of the same but the Vikings’ defending was a lot better. Stanground scored two more to make the game 7-1.

Langtoft Reserves manager James Dainty said: “They were a much better team than us and we have to accept that is what we are coming up against in this division.

“We need to take this defeat as a massive wake up call and get ourselves ready for Wednesday against Baston where I expect much better performance from the lads.”
