Stevenage have parted company with manager Dino Maamria.

The Boro haven’t won in seven games so far this season and have decided to dismiss the 48-year-old, as announced on their official club website this morning.

Ex-England Women’s Mark Sampson will take over as caretaker boss with former striker Alex Revell as his assistant until a permanent successor is found.

Maamria, who had spells in his playing career with Stevenage, Doncaster Rovers and Glentoran, took over at Broadhall Way in March 2018 and his side finished 16th in League Two.

He then achieved a respectable 10th place finish in the last campaign, a point outside the Play-Offs. However, his Boro team have shown no sign of progression so far this term and Maamria has paid the price for it already.

He was a popular figure with the Boro but will now have to search for another job.
Prior to his return to Stevenage as manager, the Tunisian boss had previous managerial spells at Northwich Victoria, Southport and Nuneaton Town.
