THERE will be a familiar face in the Doncaster dugout in the form of ex-York City loan goalkeeper Mark Prudhoe.

He has just taken on a position as goalkeeper coach at Doncaster and will be working with Andy Warrington, who he was preferred to between the Bootham Crescent sticks during a brief stay in 1997.

Rovers will also be hoping to give new signings Nick Fenton, Jermaine McSporran and James Coppinger run-outs along with trialist Guy Ipoua.

Doncaster were also boosted this week by news that the council have agreed to increase their funding towards the building of a new community stadium in the town to £32 million.

The money will be raised by selling off some of Doncaster council's £500 million stock of land assets.
