Truro City manager Lee Hodges is still hoping to add more players to his squad ahead of the club's first season in Conference South.

"We are looking to add two or three bodies just to give us a chance because it's going to be a very tough league," Hodges told BBC South West.

Hodges has re-signed all his squad from last season with the exception of French defender Alex Jeannin.

City make their Conference South debut at Chelmsford City on 13 August.

"We're always looking around to see if we can better our squad," added Hodges.

"The only problem with bringing players in is that you're having to look further afield now and that's always tough as well because most of the players have still got jobs."

But he felt his current squad is strong enough to cope with the rigours of the higher division:

"I think we're covered everywhere, in every position, and the players we have got at the club don't just play in one position, they can all play in two or three."
