Maamria sacked after loss
» DINO Maamria was sacked by Stevenage on Monday in the wake of their 4-2 defeat at Cheltenham.
After taking three points from their opening seven games and failing to win any of them, the League Two club have dismissed the 48-year-old manager and put former England Women’s coach Mark Sampson in caretaker charge.
Maamria took over at the Lamex Stadium in March 2018 and helped the club finish 10th last season.
Sampson, 36, who was sacked from his England role in 2017, steps up from the position of first-team coach and he will be assisted by newly appointed Under-18s manager Alex Revell.
Stevenage’s next match is at home to Carlisle next Saturday.
