Bristol City have finalised the twin signing of teenage Irish midfielders Patrick Hoban and Jimmy Keohane.
The Championship club have been lining up a deal for the pair in recent weeks and Hoban has arrived from Mervue, while Keohane joins from Wessex United.
New Robins manager Keith Millen is happy to have added the 19-year-olds to his Ashton Gate squad on one-year contracts.
"They are exciting prospects who are just happy to be playing football. They have been a breath of fresh air since they arrived at the club," said Millen.
"We have got to work on their fitness a bit, but it is great to have them finally signed up and on board.
"Both of them will join in with the first-team squad, they are both too old for the academy."
