EXMOUTH aren't planning massive changes to their squad after completing their title-winning season in South West Two West with a 32-16 win over relegated Camborne.
The Cockles have only lost twice in the league this season - and are unbeaten at home from start to finish.
It's a massive step up from South West Two to South West One and other clubs who have passed that way have been quick to strengthen their squads.
Exmouth won't be turning away any interested parties, but don't plan a massive recruitment drive either.
Chris Wright, Exmouth's team manager, said the squad that had got Exmouth into South West One deserved to have the chance to prove itself.
"We've got a set of young players, most of whom are nowhere near the end of their playing days or falling apart," said Wright.
"The players we have were good enough to get us up and are only going to get better playing at the next level.
"For the time being we are going to enjoy what we have achieved and enjoy our celebrations.
"Worrying about the side we will be putting out next season isn't a priority right now."
As Exmouth were already up as champions before the game, and Camborne were definitely relegated, there wasn't anything riding on the match.
For a low-key encounter it got a bit heated at times with the Cherry & Whites having two players sent to the sin bin.
Exmouth's Stuart Lowe was on the receiving end of some rough stuff and, when the swelling goes down, his doctor will know if his jaw is broken.
