Noureddine "Dino" Maamria (born 18 February 1974) is a Tunisian football manager and former player who was most recently head coach of League Two club Oldham Athletic.

Maamria started his playing career with AS Marsa of Tunisia. He left the club in 1994, and spent a season at CO Transports. He moved to England in 1996, and joined Burnley. Maamria subsequently signed for Glentoran of the IFA Premiership, spending the remainder of 1996–97 season with the club. He joined Conference National side Doncaster Rovers in 1998, spending two years at the club. He spent the 2000–01 season at Southport, before signing for Leigh RMI in July 2001. After two successful seasons at Leigh, Maamria signed for Stevenage Borough for a five-figure fee in February 2003. He left the club after making just ten appearances, joining Charleston Battery of the USL First Division. He made nine appearances for Charleston, before rejoining Stevenage in September 2003. Maamria went on to spend three seasons with Stevenage. In July 2006, he rejoined Southport, before signing for Rushden & Diamonds on a free transfer in January 2007. After being released by Rushden at the end of the 2006–07 season, Maamria signed for Northwich Victoria in August 2007.

He made the transition from playing to coaching and management, previously managing Northwich Victoria, Southport and Nuneaton Town in non-league. During his time as manager of Northwich, Maamria won the Conference Premier Manager of the Year award for the 2007–08 season, during which he guided Northwich to survival having been in administration and fifteen points adrift of safety at the time of his appointment. In March 2018, he was appointed as manager of League Two club Stevenage, a position he held until September 2019. Later that month, Maamria was appointed as head coach of Oldham Athletic. He has also been a first-team coach and assistant manager at Stevenage, Preston North End and Newport County respectively.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Maamria came through the youth system at AS Marsa in his native Tunisia, making his first-team debut in 1992. He spent two years with the club.[4] One of his final games for AS Marsa was in the Tunisian President Cup Final in 1994, played at Stade El Menzah, beating Étoile Sportive du Sahel 1–0.[4] Maamria has described it as one of the "proudest moments" of his career, owing this to the match being played in front of the Tunisian President, as well as the stadium being "full to the brim".[4] He went on to have a brief spell at CO Transports, who also played in the Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1, leaving the club in 1995.[4]

Move to England[edit]

He started his English career with Burnley in 1996.[1] While playing for AS Marsa in an away match against Étoile Sportive du Sahel, a tourist resort in the north of Tunisia, he was watched by Burnley's chief scout at the time, Brian Miller, who happened to be on holiday.[5] Miller offered Maamria a two-week trial at Burnley.[5] After scoring in a reserve match against Bradford City, he earned a short-term contract at Burnley, although he failed to make a first-team appearance for the club after he suffered a broken leg.[1][6] After being released by Burnley towards the latter stages of 1996, Maamria signed for Glentoran of the IFA Premiership.[1][7] Burnley caretaker manager Clive Middlemass had recommended Maamria to Glentoran manager Tommy Cassidy, with the player spending the remainder of the 1996–97 campaign with the club.[1]

Maamria signed for Doncaster Rovers in August 1998.[8] During the 1999–2000 season, a season in which Maamria finished as the club's top goalscorer,[9] he was transfer-listed by Doncaster, and subsequently attracted interest from Cardiff City and Kingstonian,[10] with Cardiff City making a formal bid for the player, although no move materialised.[10] He made 39 appearances and scored 11 goals for the club, and was released by Doncaster in June 2000.[11] He joined Southport in July 2000,[8][12] making 25 appearances and scoring five goals for the club.[8] He joined Leigh RMI in August 2001,[13] combining playing for the club with a coaching job at his former employers, Burnley.[1] He made 58 appearances and scored 26 goals for the club.[8] He joined Stevenage Borough for a five-figure fee in February 2003.[14] After making 10 appearances and scoring five goals,[8] he joined Charleston Battery in the USL First Division,[15] where he failed to score in nine appearances.[16]

He rejoined Stevenage in September 2003 after receiving international clearance.[15] During this spell with the club, he made 96 appearances and scored 33 goals.[8] He rejoined Southport in July 2006.[8] Rushden & Diamonds manager Graham Westley wanted to sign Maamria in December 2006,[17] and Southport denied having received an official approach for him from Rushden.[18] Southport said they wanted an improved offer from Rushden if they were to let Maamria leave.[19] After making 17 appearances and scoring six goals with Southport,[8] he joined Rushden on a one-and-a-half year on a free transfer in January.[20]

International career[edit]

Maamria made one appearance for the Tunisia U21 team in 1991.[1]

Managerial career[edit]

Early coaching career[edit]

Maamria's first experience coaching came at Burnley in the summer of 1997 where he worked as an academy coach to help "find, produce and develop youngsters" within the youth system at Burnley.[21] He helped develop players such as Jay Rodriguez during his time there.[21] He gained his UEFA 'B' licence in 1999 and earned his 'A' licence two years later, both whilst also playing in the early stages of his career in England.[21] In June 2000, Maamria went on a two-week course at Lilleshall in order to get an FA coaching badge.[11]

Northwich Victoria[edit]

Whilst playing for Conference Premier club Northwich Victoria towards the latter stages of his playing career, Maamria was made caretaker manager in October 2007.[22][23] At the time of his appointment, Northwich were bottom of the Conference Premier having lost 15 of their opening 17 matches to start the season, drawing the other two, and were fifteen points adrift of safety.[24] They had also just entered administration.[23] On the situation, Maamria stated — "We can't do anything about things off the pitch but we can change results on the pitch. I said to the players there are two things we can do: we can either make excuses and say that we have had financial problems and lie down and die or we can go out and perform and try and beat the teams in front of us".[23] In his second game in charge, Northwich won their first match of the season, a 3–1 away victory at Southport in the FA Cup on 27 October 2007.[24][25]

A month later, on 24 November 2007, Northwich secured their first league win of the campaign courtesy of a 1–0 home win against Rushden & Diamonds.[26] Northwich's prospective new owners said they wanted to make him the club's permanent manager once their takeover was complete.[27] Following the completion of their takeover on 11 December 2007, he was confirmed as the club's permanent manager.[28] Northwich began to pick up points following the turn of the year, winning six matches out of eleven and going eight games unbeaten in March 2008.[24] Two wins within the space of three days in April 2008,[24] the latter a 2–1 away win against former club Stevenage, meant that Northwich had secured their Conference Premier status for another year.[29] The unlikely survival, achieved with a game to spare, resulted in Maamria winning the Conference Manager of the Year for the 2007–08 season.[21][30]

Following on from securing Northwich's safety the previous season, Maamria remained at the club for the start of the 2008–09 season.[31] Despite ending the previous in good form, Northwich started the season by losing seven out of their first ten matches.[31] Maamria was placed on gardening leave for "reasons still unconfirmed" in September 2008,[32] and was subsequently sacked by Northwich "following an internal investigation surrounding his suspension" on 23 October 2008.[33][32][34]

Coaching spells[edit]

Maamria subsequently rejoined former club Stevenage as part of Graham Westley's coaching team in November 2008, appointed as the club's first-team coach.[21] Shortly after joining, Maamria recommended Stevenage sign Mark Roberts, who he had previously managed at Northwich, with Roberts stating he joined the club because of Maamria's belief and desire.[35] Maamria's appointment, alongside a number of new signings such as Roberts and Jon Ashton, coincided with an upturn in form for Stevenage, with the club going on a 24-game unbeaten run stretching from December 2008 to April 2009.[36] During the season, he was also included as part of the playing staff, helping the club to its first ever Herts Senior Cup success in April 2009, scoring twice in the final against Cheshunt in a 2–1 victory.[37] Later that month, he made a 90th-minute appearance in Stevenage's 1–0 win over Ebbsfleet United, in what turned out to be his last professional appearance.[38] Maamria earned his first piece of silverware as first-team coach when the club won the FA Trophy at Wembley Stadium courtesy of a 2–0 win over York City in the final on 9 May 2009.[39]

In his first full season back at Stevenage in his coaching role, the club won the Conference National title by finishing the season as champions and were subsequently promoted to the Football League for the first time in their history.[40] During the season, Maamria also featured on the bench in Stevenage's match away to Eastbourne Borough in March 2010.[41] The success continued during the 2010–11 season as Stevenage secured back-to-back promotions into League One after winning the League Two play-offs, beating Torquay United 1–0 in the final at Old Trafford in May 2011.[42] That campaign, following a shortage of players for Stevenage's match against Lincoln City in September 2010, Maamria was assigned the number 27 shirt and featured as an unused substitute in the club's 1–0 win.[43] This proved to be his final involvement in terms of the playing side of his career.[44]

In January 2012, Maamria joined fellow League One club Preston North End as first-team coach after Westley was appointed as the club's manager.[45] Despite a squad overhaul, the coaching team did not replicate the success that they had experienced at Stevenage, and he left the club in February 2013 after Westley was sacked.[46] A month later, Maamria rejoined Stevenage as assistant manager to Westley, who had returned for a third spell in-charge of the Hertfordshire club.[47][48] During the 2014–15 campaign, Stevenage made the League Two play-offs, losing to Southend United over two legs at the semi-final stage in May 2015.[49] A week after the defeat to Southend, Maamria left the club alongside Westley when the club appointed Teddy Sheringham as manager.[50] During his time out of the game in 2015, Maamria earned the UEFA Pro Licence, the highest certificate available in coaching.[21] Two months into the 2016–17 season, on 10 October 2016, Maamria was once again appointed as assistant manager to Westley, this time at League Two side Newport County.[51] He left the club when Westley was sacked on 9 March 2017.[52]

Southport[edit]

Maamria was appointed manager of National League club Southport on 19 November 2015, his first managerial role since keeping Northwich Victoria in the same division seven years earlier.[53] He returned to Southport having played for the club during three separate spells in his playing career.[53] Southport were sitting in the relegation zone at the time of his appointment having won just three matches out of 20 during the opening months of the campaign, eight points adrift of safety.[53][54] He took charge of his first match two days later, on 21 November 2015, as Southport secured a late 1–0 away victory over Welling United.[55] Under Maamria's guidance, the club won eight out of their next ten matches, going on a nine-match unbeaten run in the process.[54] Maamria was subsequently named Manager of the Month for December 2015.[56] He left Southport on 14 March 2016, just five months after joining, citing "family and travel reasons" as the reasons behind his departure.[57] Southport were in 17th position in the league at the time of his exit, eight points above the relegation zone.[57]

Nuneaton Town[edit]

After leaving his coaching role at Newport, Maamria stated he had "plenty of chances to get back into football", but was waiting for the right opportunity.[58] He was named as manager of Nuneaton Town of the National League North on 28 October 2017.[58] Similarly to when he joined both Northwich and Southport as manager, Nuneaton were struggling in the league, sitting one place above the relegation zone having won just four league matches in the opening two-and-a-half months of the 2017–18 season.[59] Maamria's first game in charge of Nuneaton was a 2–1 away loss to FC United of Manchester on the same day his appointment was announced.[60] He discussed a need to "manage expectations" given the club's lowly position and highlighted the defence as an area in need of improvement if the club were to start climbing the table.[61] A 2–1 victory over promotion-chasing Harrogate Town on 9 January 2018 served as the catalyst for Nuneaton to produce a ten-game unbeaten run that spanned over two months, conceding just six goals during the run.[59][62] At the time of Maamria's departure in March 2018, Nuneaton had moved to within five points of the play-off places.[59]

Stevenage[edit]

Maamria was appointed as manager of League Two club Stevenage on 20 March 2018,[63] having previously played for the club and been first-team coach and assistant manager in separate spells.[64] Maamria's first match in charge was a 1–0 home defeat to Colchester United on 24 March 2018.[65] He secured his first win as Stevenage manager courtesy of a 4–1 home victory over local rivals Barnet on 2 April 2018.[66] He was sacked on 9 September 2019 after a poor start to the season.[67]

Oldham Athletic[edit]

On 19 September 2019, Maamria was appointed as head coach of League Two club Oldham Athletic.[68] On 31 July 2020, after 10 months in charge, Maamia was sacked as manager of Oldham.[69]

Personal life[edit]

Maamria was born and raised in Tunisia.[4] He is the youngest of seven siblings, having five brothers and one sister.[5] Maamria stated he came from a "poor background",[5] living in a tent until he was four years old.[5] Of his upbringing, Maamria stated — "Yes, I was poor but I loved it and I wouldn’t swap it for the world."[5] He and his siblings would run the 20-mile round trip to school.[5] The family owned two goats, one of which Maamria named 'Gary' after footballer Gary Lineker.[5] Maamria's father worked in the phosphate mines.[5]

He always wanted to be a footballer ever since the 1978 FIFA World Cup in which the Tunisian team made their first appearance in the finals.[5] His footballing hero is Diego Maradona, and believes that Maradona is "the best player to have ever played the game".[4] He has said that coaching is an "ideal job that he loves doing".[4] He also enjoys listening to hip hop and R&B music.[4]

During his time playing at Leigh RMI, Maamria also worked as an Ethnic Minorities Development Officer at Turf Moor.[1][70][71]
