Despite a spell of poor form at the start of the 2004-5 season, Dino Maamria ended the season as the hero of Stevenage Borough. It was his two goals over against Hereford United that catapulted Boro’ to the playoff final at Stoke; the Tunisian striker seeming to come up with the most important goals. First it was a brace as we came from two down to draw with Forest Green Rovers. And, the next week, it was another brace as Boro’ came from behind to beat Exeter City.
The 2005-6 season didn’t start too well for Maamria, with three red cards leading to calls for his departure because of a lack of discipline. He bounced back, however; performing consistently well in the centre of midfield. It was a role that seemed to have been adopted permanently. Out of the blue, however, Maamria was released in the summer of 2006 after nearly a century of starts to his name.
Dino Maamria: After Boro’
After leaving Hertfordshire, Maamria returned north to Southport. He moved to Rushden & Diamonds in 2007, but headed back to Haig Avenue on loan during his time at Nene Park. That same year saw another move, this time to Northwich Victoria. With the Vics, Maamria ended his playing days and moved into management – although his return to Boro’ for the 2008-9 campaign as coach saw the player turn out in the Herts Senior Cup for one final hurrah.
