DONCASTER will be able to play in the First Division for the first time after an pounds 80,000 grant from their local council lifted the threat of closure. Doncaster, who have also received sponsorship from local firms, will be able to bring their ground up to standard and keep one of the overseas players they were resigned to releasing, the Samoan centre, Vila Matautia. 'It will be a hand-to- mouth existence, but better than no existence at all,' the club's spokesman, Brian Lamport, said.
