MIKE HARRIS last night set Saints a new challenge - to progress through the first qualifying round of the Champions League.
He has pledged to bring in a quality player to boost the Champions League challenge next season, with Wrexham hitman Juan Ugarte already mentioned as a possible target.
"I've committed myself to bringing in one high-profile player in the summer to ensure we've got the best chance in the Champions League," said Harris, who saw TNS make up for the near misses of last season and seal their second Welsh Premier crown on Wednesday night at Carmarthen.
Former Welsh Premier outfit Barry Town are the only Welsh side to have won a Champions League tie when they beat FC Shamkir of Azerbaijan 3-0 on aggregate in 2001.
Barry have fallen at the first hurdle five times, TNS once in 2000, Rhyl once and Cwmbran Town once.
"We'll prepare ourselves as well as we can and we want to achieve things other Welsh teams haven't.
"It'll be tough but we'll be up for it," added Harris.
