Mark Sampson: Stevenage coach’s charge of using racist language not proven

Mark Sampson previously said he was “completely confident” he would clear his name

A Football Association charge against Stevenage coach Mark Sampson for the alleged use of racist language has been dismissed after his case was found not proven by an independent commission.

The former England women’s manager was charged in November after an allegation by a former coach at the club.

Sampson, 37, denied the charge and had a personal hearing earlier this month.

“I am pleased the findings concur with our own internal investigation,” Boro chairman Phil Wallace said.
