Former Stevenage player and assistant boss Dino Maamria has been appointed as the new manager of the League Two club.

The Tunisian, 44, joins from National League North side Nuneaton, where he had been in charge since October.

He replaces Darren Sarll, who was sacked on Sunday after two years in charge with the club 16th in the table.

“I have always loved his passion for the club, our fans and for winning football matches,” Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace told the club website.
