Former England women manager Mark Sampson has returned to football after being appointed first-team coach at League Two club Stevenage.

Sampson was sacked in September 2017 following evidence of “inappropriate and unacceptable” behaviour with female players in a previous role.

He and the FA reached a settlement in January after an unfair dismissal case.

Sampson, 36, and David Oldfield have both been added to Stevenage manager Dino Maamria’s coaching team.

“We are fully aware of Mark’s past issues with the FA,” Maamria told the club website.
