There can be no doubt that North Launceston are very good at what they do.
Claiming five out of the last six premierships as well as a development league win on Saturday, the Northern Bombers have created a State League dynasty that will be remembered for years to come.
But coach Taylor Whitford is still hungry for more.
"When we started this journey we weren't after a one-hit wonder," he said
"We didn't want to come in and win a grand final or play in a grand final and move on the next year, we wanted to sustain success and that's got to continue next year.
GRAND FINAL WRAPS
- TSL: North Launceston defeat Lauderdale in 2019 decider
- North's 2019 flag: Legacy, Lee's knee and Callow
- TSLW: Clarence steal last minute grand final win
- TSL: North Launceston gun forward leads the way in win
- TSL: Josh Ponting takes home Darrel Baldock medal
- North Launceston pips Tigers in development league grand final
"I haven't even looked at next year yet and how that looks like but we can't rest on our laurels. Yes, we've won five grand finals but we want to be a club of choice for all people of Tasmania."
One of three players to have played in all five grand finals alongside - Brad Cox-Goodyer and Jack Avent - Whitford took the coaching reins from former Melbourne midfielder Tom Couch following his stint in 2017.
Zane Littlejohn led the side to their first two flags, a 2014-15 double over Western Storm and Glenorchy respectively before graduating from the Bombers academy to the AFL in a development coaching role at Brisbane which he still holds.
With seven new players including four-goal hero Jackson Callow, earning their premiership stripes in Saturday's 29-point win over Lauderdale, anything is possible as the TSL's leading men aim to further their dynasty.
With the quality of players exiting the club at the end of last season, you could be forgiven for not expecting premiership success.

Tom Bennett, Mark Walsh and Jake Pearce found new homes and NTFA premiership success at Hillwood, while Jordan Cousens, Zach Burt and Beau Sharman returned to Rocherlea, George Town and Devonport respectively.
The NTFA and NWFL departures weren't the only worries as mainland Bombers duo Tom Couch and Michael Tang traveled back across Bass Strait and Tarryn Thomas found his home at North Melbourne, leaving a gaping hole of a combined 19 flags between the nine players.
But as they always tend to do, the now-five-time premiers found a way and the cavalry arrived, with seven fresh-faced stars playing in their first North Launceston premiership against Lauderdale on Saturday.
Featuring three 2019 NTFA coaches in Rocherlea's Andrew Cox-Goodyer, Scottsdale's Geoff Mohr and George Town's Allan O'Sign, former Werribee midfielder Ethan Petterwood will become another leader as he takes over Mohr's post at the Magpies next season.
Two-time premiership Bomber Logan Reynolds and 2015 teammate Louis Venn both found unbeaten premiership success at Lilydale, continuing the State League side's winning culture.
