Tony Mowbray hailed Middlesbrough's latest batch of starlets to come off their production line.
Boro wrapped up their Championship campaign, and a top-half finish, with a comfortable 3-0 win over Doncaster.
And teenage debutant Adam Reach was on hand to round off the win after goals from Barry Robson and Leroy Lita.
Highly-rated Cameron Park also came on for Boro and Mowbray is delighted with the latest breed of talent emerging from the club's famed youth academy.
"They are real talents who are comfortable with the ball and brave too," Mowbray said.
"They don't mind trying things on the pitch because they have confidence in their ability.
"They didn't look out of place on the pitch and played their roles in what was in the end a comfortable win."
Mowbray now faces a summer of trying to keep hold of his top young players with Rhys Williams, Joe Bennett and Jason Steele all linked with Premier League clubs.
But the Boro boss insists that, despite the club's financial position, he will be looking to keep hold of his best youngsters.
"I will get phone calls from other managers over the summer and I don't mind that because it means that they are good players that other people want," he said.
"I would be a bit disappointed if other team's didn't want them.
"But I must stress that I am under no pressure whatsoever from the club to sell any of our younger talented players.
"I know there has been speculation in the papers over some of them but I want them here at this club and I have told them that."
Williams has already been the subject of interest from Bolton, but Mowbray feels he needs another season at least with Boro.
"Rhys needs a full season under his belt after coming back from injury and he needs to be doing it here," he said.
"He is a real talent but to realise it he needs to get 40 games under his belt and he knows we want him to do that at Middlesbrough."
Doncaster boss Sean O'Driscoll admits he was at a loss to explain his side's poor display at The Riverside.
"There was no desire," he said. "I can't explain it but we didn't show the kind of standards we expect in games.
"I think the important game was last week when we drew with Leicester to ensure we stayed up and I think maybe that was in a few minds that the job was done.
"Whatever the reason it just didn't happen for us.
"But we have to remember that we have dragged this club kicking and screaming into the Championship in recent years and have stayed there again this year."
