Kent have signed young fast bowlers Charlie Hartley and Matt Hunn for the 2014 campaign.
Both players have featured for the Canterbury outfit's second XI this season.
Kent high performance director Simon Willis said: "Both of these young players have impressed at second-team level this season.
"[They have] shown a great desire and have the ability to take wickets on a regular basis."
Colchester-born Hunn, 19, could make his first-class debut for Kent in this week's County Championship match against Lancashire.
