NEEDHAM Market boss Danny Laws says he fancies Wroxham to go all the way to the FA Vase final a Wembley Stadium, after their 2-1 victory at Bloomfields on Saturday.

Despite being understandably disappointed to lose, Laws took his hat off to the Yachtsmen, who he now feels can make it a

season for them to remember.

“You have simply got to give the opposition some credit,” he said.

“They punished our mistakes, defended well and forced us into errors.

“Our downfall was our own mistakes, simple as that. You can't give a team like Wroxham two goals and expect to score five. It isn't going to happen.

“I fancy them to go all the way to the final now. Over two legs in the semi-finals, they are going to be very difficult to beat.”

But despite the defeat Needham Market still have much on their plate in the final throws of this campaign.

Something Laws knows.

“We had a huddle afterwards and I said I need big characters now,” Laws added. At the start of the season, it was the League title we put down as our number one goal.

''We've had a nice run in the Vase, but I need players to respond, starting with the visit of Leiston on Tuesday.”

Needham captain Rhys Barber said he felt Wroxham were difficult to play against.

“We knew they would be difficult,” he said.

“I've been at Needham four years and have played them eight times, and they are never easy to play against.

“But today we felt they had only a few chances and we are disappointed, especially after we equalised and then they go and take the lead again.

“But our biggest goal

is the league title and that is what we must aim for.”

Needham chairman David Bugg added: “We've had superb support here today and it's a shame we couldn't do it.

“Their second goal gave them something to hang onto and I felt we were mugged a bit, to be honest.”
