Neil Kilshaw, Saints Player Performance Manager, said: “These signings are just reward for the hard work and dedication demonstrated by these young men over the last two years.

“Eight have signed from St Helens Community Clubs showing the strength of the community game within the town, and they are a credit to their clubs and those volunteers that have helped to develop them since a very young age.

“Nine of these young men are training hard in preparation for our 2015 Australia Tour in October which is another significant learning curve in their development.

“Unfortunately Evan Bullen, is unable to make the tour as he is at a critical phase of a rehabilitation programme for an injury sustained during the summer.”

Saints Academy Head Coach Derek Traynor added: “These signings all have the potential to play Super League and we’re all looking forward to their exploits in Australia and then linking up with the Under 19s squad for their first pre-season!”

Saints Academy was once graded as ‘Outstanding’ in the RFL’s annual accreditation review.
