And Douglas wants as many supporters as possible to come and back the team: "Against Doncaster we played some outstanding rugby and I would like to think supporters want to watch more of that on a regular basis.
"The A League is a great opportunity to see some of the most talented players in the country and they really value the support, particularly at Kingsholm. Last year, Leicester got crowds in excess of 9,000 and it would be great if we could double our home attendances and get a really good number.
"This is the next generation of Gloucester's senior side on the door step and we would love to get a good crowd, particularly against Bath for what is a really big game for these guys."
First team regulars Mark Cornwell, Terry Sigley and Marcel Garvey are all expected to be involved, while Olly Morgan, James Bailey, Luke Narraway and Will Matthews, all desperate to make a senior breakthrough, will also be included.
"We have selected a good, competitive side with plenty of talent and growing experience," Douglas added. "This is a competition we really want to do well in this season and to get off with a victory over Bath would be a great start."
Skills coach Duncan McRae is likely to be on the bench, as Brad Davies gets his chance at half-back alongside Danny Pointon, the scrum-half from St Peter's School.
Entrance is free to season ticket holders, £5 for adults and £3 for juniors.
