Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

» 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.
