Tipped for big things, the pair have come through the famed Southampton Academy, following in the footsteps of stars such as Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Under-18s skipper Gape is a tough tackling central midfielder who has already featured in the senior squad. The 18-year-old was on the bench for the League Cup win against Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season.
Striker Seager, 17, started his first full season at Under-18 level with a real bang, notching eight goals in his opening six games and has since gone on to represent England Under-17s.
