THE league title is the sole focus at the GJ Churchward Memorial Ground this season, with Gary Fisher aiming to go one better than the second place he achieved in his first season as manager last year.
Despite losing a number of players to other clubs at the start of last season, Fisher quickly built a side which proved hard to beat and ended up finishing behind only promoted Exmouth Town in Division One East.
But the boot seems to be on the other foot this season.
The Railwaymen have benefited more than anyone from the break-up of Liverton's Premier Division side, signing four of Tony Bowker's former squad.
Centre-back partnership Craig Fenner and Simon Laughton could end up going straight into the first-team line-up at Broadley Lane, while Ollie Booth and Ryan O'Callaghan have also signed.
Robbie Bowker has also made the switch from Galmpton United, while the addition of former Totnes and Dartington skipper Mark Ashworth could also prove shrewd.
Ex-Kingskerswell and Chelston goalkeeper Dom Aplin further strengthens the spine of Fisher's squad.
Fisher has lost club captain Mark Newbould – due to work commitments – while Nick Milton has left for the lure of Southern League football at Bideford.
The only other loss is the retirement of assistant manager Ian Down, who is now well into his 40s – but the club are likely to retain his registration in case of emergency.
Assisting Fisher this season will be former reserve team boss Matt Zadel and newcomer Rick Lee.
An upbeat Fisher said: "I've got eight players different from last season, and I've only had three players go out so it's really good overall.
"I think I've got players who have looked at the clubhouse and have bought into the idea of what we're trying to do and want to play for us as we're going places.
"We're up and coming."
Fisher's grand plan for the club first involves getting out of the East, starting with a trip to Sidmouth Town on August 17.
"The first part is to win this league – I wanted to win the league and get into the Premier Division in two years, and this is my second season as manager," he said.
And pre-season results have done little to dampen expectations, with wins over Torquay United Youth (2-1), AFC Brixham (4-1) and Premier Division outfit Plymouth Parkway.
This weekend, Fisher's side will test their resolve with a clash against Southern League side Taunton Town at Broadley Lane (1pm kick-off).
"Results don't matter really – it's all about fitness," added Fisher.
"But they [Parkway] have obviously come second in the league above last season, so to beat them is no mean feat."
