One of Andrew Webster's main goals at the start of the season was to graduate as many players from the under-20s to first grade as possible.
"As a coach you always want to win games, but one of my main goals this year is to get as many players playing first grade as possible," Webster said at the start of the year.
"We have some young kids here and hopefully we can get them to a point this year where they are playing consistent footy each week."
With three rounds remaining, the Holden Cup coach has helped four players make their NRL debut.
Kelepi Tanginoa was the first against the Bulldogs in round two.
Three more have followed: Vai Toutai, Kaysa Pritchard and Junior Paulo.
It highlights the depth of junior talent at Parramatta.
In a further boost Tanginoa, Pritchard and Paulo have been signed to new deals this year.
"Obviously the results on the field have been disappointing but I'm really happy with those four boys in how they have managed to take the next step up," Webster said.
"We have also had some boys train with the NRL squad and progressed a few to the NSW Cup. There is a future for a lot of players if they continue to train hard."
Webster said 2013 would go down as a year of missed opportunities for the under-20s with several games in the first half of the year decided by six points or less.
Currently in 13th place, Webster said the team had spoken about building on last week's win against Melbourne.
"We play St George and Newcastle who are directly above us on the ladder in the last two weeks, and if we can win we can jump those teams and finish closer to the eight," he said.
