Framlingham Town manager keen to rediscover winning mentality
Framlingham Town boss Liam Abraham wants his side to restore a ‘winning mentality’ after a difficult start to the season, writes Callum Crabtree.
Abraham has insisted he isn’t worried about the prospect of relegation, but is still aiming to finish the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North season strong.
“It sounds cliché, but we just want to finish as high as possible,” he said of his 16th-placed side. “We know we’re not going to get promoted so we just want to see how far up the league we can climb.
“We’re not worried about relegation, we just want to restore a winning mentality back to the side after a few difficult seasons.”
Framlingham lost 4-2 against Lakenheath on Saturday, but Abraham praised his team’s performance despite being disappointed with the manner in which they conceded.
“We played well and I don’t think we necessarily did anything wrong in the second half but they just came out stronger,” he continued. “ I was disappointed with the way we conceded as they were soft goals.”
AFC Sudbury Reserves visit Framlingham tomorrow (3pm) as Abraham looks to replicate the 2-1 victory they secured over them back in November.
“It was an even game last time and we just edged it. They’re a well drilled side and like to play football just like ourselves,” he said.
“Sudbury aren’t as physical as other teams but they’re still difficult to break down. We’ll go into it with a similar game plan and hope to get the same outcome.”
In the past week, attacking midfielder Mason Ransome departed the club to join Hadleigh United, yet Abraham is not actively seeking a replacement.
“Mason was a really good player for us but we have enough quality where we don’t need to immediately replace him. We’re always looking to improve whether a player like Mason leaves or not,” he revealed.
Ransome has scored one goal from his 22 appearances this term.
