Swinton have signed six players on dual registration from Warrington.
Brad Dwyer, Ryan Shaw, Danny Bridge, Gene Ormsby, Jordan Burke and Gavin Bennion will all make their debuts against Salford on Sunday at the Salford City Stadium (2pm).
"They are all quality players who have come through the ranks at Warrington and we are delighted to have them on board," said coach Steve McCormack.
Dwyer, 19, is a hooker who made nine appearances for Warrington's first team last season, eight as a substitute.
Shaw, 20, is a former England academy centre who has had spells at Castleford and Leigh.
Bridge, 20, is the brother of Warrington half-back Chris. He plays front or back row. He began his career at Waterhead before joining the Wigan academy in 2009 and represented England at both under-15 and under-18 levels.
Ormsby, 20, is a winger while full-back Jordan Burke, 21, skippered the Warrington Under-20s last season and made his first team debut in the Challenge Cup against Keighley.
Bennion, 20 is a front or back row forward who started out at Latchford Albion and played in England’s Academy tour of Australia in August.
Brad Dwyer is the one that should really make us all smile and more importantly give us that fast scrum half we`ve all been hoping for.

We just need the application for Agecroft to be submitted to top it all off.First two weeks in January Paul Kidd said at the shirt launch.
To be frank, this is getting like the music hall joke: - "How do you keep an idiot in suspense? I'll tell you tomorrow!".
The Kidd version is: "How do you keep Swinton supporters in suspense? Tell them something big's going to happen on Agecroft in the next month or two."
This formula has been stuck to now for 7 years.

Having so many players in the side whose first call is to another club still doesn't sit comfortably though, afraid to say.
