Mark Sampson: Ex-England women boss leaves Stevenage coaching role

Last update on.
Mark Sampson coached England's women to the semi finals of the European Championships and World Cup.

To "move on" to new challenges, Mark Sampson, former England women's boss, has resigned from his position as Stevenage first team coach.

The Welshman, 39, had been with the League Two club since July 2019 and was a temporary caretaker manager following the departure of Dino Maamria.

After displaying "inappropriate" and unacceptable behavior with female players, Sampson was fired as England boss in 2017.

After an unfair dismissal case, he and the FA came to a settlement.

Stevenage, led by Alex Revell, is 21st in fourth tier.

Ronnie Henry, the club's all time record holder, is now an academy coach at The Club and will be working with Revell as well as assistant Dean Wilkins "temporarily".

Chairman Phil Wallace stated that Mark has been diligent in his coaching role since Dean Wilkins arrived to help Alex Revell. He wants to continue on with new challenges and we wish him all the best.

"Our league results were unacceptable to us all, and Alex and myself have had many discussions recently."
