Supporters were left confused thinking the club had just announced the signing of the forward.
The former Arsenal youngster played for Ricay last night in their 3-1 friendly win at Maidstone United, however, Emmanuel-Thomas denied reports he has signed for the club. Via Instagram’s stories feature, he posted the following:
‘I have NOT signed for Billericay, just to make that clear !!!’
The club then tweeted:
‘Club statement – Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, to be clear we haven’t signed or made any form of statement to say Jay has signed! we are looking at him as he is us, negotiations are ongoing, keep an eye on the social pages for updates’
