Newport boss Anthony Hudson is confident his side can mount a successful promotion push next season.
The Exiles completed their home campaign in the Blue Square Bet Premier with a 1-0 defeat against champions Crawley.
And Hudson believes Newport have what it takes to follow Crawley into the Football League.
"They're going to the Football League and that's where we want to be," said Hudson.
"I've never doubted that we're going to do this and get to the Football League. We're a club, for many reasons, that are going to the Football League.
"Next season we are going to have a very good pre-season a good summer adding [and] building.
"We will be in contention next season throughout, [there's] no doubt in my mind."
Hudson, who was Tottenham's reserve team coach before taking the reigns at Spytty Park, believes Newport have the resources to reach the Football League.
"We literally have absolutely everything in place to be a very competitive, strong outfit next season," he told BBC Sport Wales.
"We will be prepared and [we] will be ready because there is only one thing on our mind and that is going into the Football League. I have every confidence we will get there."
