St Helens have signed Blackbrook stand-off or full-back Adam Swift on a two-year contract.
The 18-year-old has played for England Community Lions and featured for the Saints' under-20s against their Salford counterparts on Friday.
Saints head of youth Mike Rush said: "We have tracked him for a while. He is a good young lad, with a great attitude and will be a welcome addition.
"He had a great amateur career and we hope he continues that development."
