Southampton trio Matt Paterson, Jake Thomson and Jack Boyle have all agreed new contracts, skysports.com understands.
All three players were expected to pen new deals as early as March but the news will still come as a timely boost for the South Coast outfit.
Striker Paterson, 19, and midfielder Thomson, 19, both broke into the first-team last season and will be looking to cement their place in the starting XI this term.
Boyle meanwhile has impressed after signing a six-month contract in mid-season last campaign.
The 18-year-old was spotted by the club when playing for Jersey against Guernsey last year and has done enough for the club's reserve side to warrant a more permanent stay.
