Stevenage have appointed former England Women’s boss Mark Sampson as a first-team coach, while David Oldfield returns to the backroom staff.
Sampson was in charge of the Lionesses from 2013 to 2017, guiding them to third place at the 2015 Women's World Cup, but he was sacked after an FA report into 'inappropriate behaviour'.
Stevenage boss Dino Maamria acknowledged this, saying: "We are fully aware of Mark's past issues with the FA.
"I have known Mark for a long time and we have discussed what happened at length.
"I am convinced of his character and skillset. He will be a big asset to the club moving forward."
