Northampton Town duo Josh Flanagan (pictured) and Liam Cross have both joined St Ives on a month's loan.
The first year professionals will spend the first month of the new season at the Southern Premier Central side.
"This move will be good for both players," said manager Jon Brady.
"St Ives have a very busy first month of the season with seven or eight games scheduled and the lads will learn a lot by playing regular first team football with and against senior, experienced players.
"This move forms part of our plans for both players, they will learn a lot about the physicality of the game and how to use their bodies and we will monitor their progress closely over the next few weeks.
"I have been very pro-active in trying to get the young players out on loan to help make them first team ready and that is something that will continue."
