Joining the Senior Academy for the 2013-14 season are five new recruits - Reece Boughton, Ryan Charles, Jonny Hill, Lewis Ludlow and Tom Hicks.
The first four have come through the ranks, products of the prolific partnership with Hartpury College, while Hicks joins from Northampton Saints.
They'll add to an already strong group and all have real potential says Lane:
"The four who are stepping up from our Under 18s have come on in leaps and bounds in the last 12 months.
"Jonny Hill is a bit of a raw talent, but he's made good progress with us and Hartpury.
"He's got the physical attributes, the bits you can't coach, he's athletic and he is a real lineout presence.
"Reece played for the A League side up at Worcester at the start of the season just finished, and he was only just 17 at the time.
"He's got a good all-round game, he's a very good left-footed kicker, off the tee as well as out of hand.
"Ryan Charles is an aggressive ball-carrier who throws the ball well.
"Lewis has improved rapidly in the last 18 months, he trained with the first team squad last pre-season and he's used that as a springboard. He captained our Under-18s and he led from the front.
"He's a good lineout option, he carries well and he's got a very, very good work-rate, as well as being a physical specimen.
"Tom Hicks is a middle jumper who looks a great prospect, and hopefully he'll really blossom in this environment.
Lane is looking forward to seeing how all the players in the Academy develop this year. If they perform, then they'll get a real chance to show what they can do and progress to the next level.
"We're excited by the group we've put together, and what they can achieve.
"The amount of exposure our young players get in the first team, that's just underlines how valued home grown talent is. If players in our academy perform, they will get the opportunity.
"It's a huge, huge honour for these youngsters to pull on the Gloucester shirt, and long may that continue. It's a big weapon for us to call upon.
"There are youngsters coming through now who are the sons of Gloucester players, and that's part of what makes this rugby club so special.
"All the best players in the world have to start somewhere, so why not local boys from Gloucester?"
