Challen is focusing on the future

Wroxham caretaker manager Graham Challen is confident the Yachtsmen can achieve a positive result in the second round of the Carlsberg FA Vase at Mildenhall tomorrow.

Wroxham caretaker manager Graham Challen is confident the Yachtsmen can achieve a positive result in the second round of the Carlsberg FA Vase at Mildenhall tomorrow.

Challen, Wroxham's central defender, who is out of action due to an industrial injury, will select Yachtsmen warhorse Leighton Miller alongside Josh Carus in the heart of the back four. Paul Cook and Andy Key will serve as a twin-pronged attack, and apart from Danny Self needing a late fitness test, those are the only changes from last Saturday's losing squad, although reserve defender Charlton Halliday would have been called up but for serving a one-match suspension.

"What with the upheaval this week at the club, our fans may believe we haven't a chance at Mildenhall. But they too have had their internal troubles so I'm not so sure we rate as underdogs," declared Challen.

"This is a massively important game for us and a victory would demonstrate that Wroxham are a resilient club who have the capacity to bounce back from these little local difficulties."

He concluded: "I do not want to dwell on the past, it is the future that counts."

Former Yachtsman Martyn Magee's offer to assist Challen has been accepted.
