Bradford have confirmed the signing of nine players on contracts until the end of the 2015 season.
All nine have joined the Bulls on the Full Time AASE Programme, and seven of the new signings were formerly on scholarship deals.
Centre Ross Oakes, prop Liam Kirk and back-row forward Michael Paul have joined from Driglington ARLFC, while versatile centre James Pickering has been recruited from Dewsbury Celtic.
Hooker Callum Ogden has been signed from Rochdale Mayfield along with Siddal ARLFC prop Jack Georgiou and Milford Marlins centres Jake Hrintchuck and Kieran Walpole, and stand-off Macauley Barron.
Bradford's head of youth Paul Medley said: "It's great for the club that they have all chosen to come here.
"It shows that confidence is returning to the Bulls after the problems of last year and these nine will be given every opportunity to push on in the system.
"We have invested in staff for next year as well as these players and they are coming into a very stable and quality environment."
