Tooting & Mitcham United boss Jamie Martin says he is still two more signings away from completing his Terrors revolution at Imperial Fields.
And the condfident manager believes his side are on the right track to reach the Blue Square Premier.
Martin captured the signature of French striker Laurent Hamici from Cray Wanderers on Wednesday, and he is expected to go straight into the squad that travels to Sittingbourne this weekend in Ryman League Division One South.
It brings the number of new arrivals at Imperial Fields to six, with Adam Thompson, Jamie Lawrence, Anthony Joseph, George Landais and Francis Quarm the other new acquisitions.
Martin has released Sos Yao and Sol Pinnock, who has joined Carshalton Athletic, to make room for Hamici's arrival.
And, even though Martin is in the process of talking to two more players, the evolution is already bearing fruit.
The Terrors are unbeaten in five leagues games, and have won the last three without conceding a goal.
Martin said: "Laurent has been the top scorer in the Ryman Premier so I am hoping he will bring us goals, which is an area where we are lacking.
"I understand he had a falling out with the Cray manager and when I saw he was on the bench there, I queried it becase the lad is quality.
"We put a seven-day approach in, which ended on Wednesday, and Cray initially did not want to let him go but in the end we wrestled him away."
He added: "I honestly believe that with the two new names we can get automatic promotion, and within five years be in the Blue Square Premier."
