Billericay Town appoint third new boss in two months

Controversial owner Glenn Tamplin has appointed Hemel Hempstead Town manager Dean Brennan following the departure of Harry Wheeler.

Whilst at the National League South club for six years, Brennan secured promotion by winning the Southern League Premier Division title in 2014.

In the 2014/15 season, he then took the Tudors to the First Round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1938/39, but ended up losing 3-1 at Bury.

The former Hitchin, Stevenage, Grays Athletic, Lewes, AFC Wimbledon, Hemel, Halesowen and Dunstable Town player becomes Ricay’s third manager in two months after Wheeler, who led them to three trophies last season was then sacked by text towards the end of a league match.

Then the bizarre story of Steve Watt, who was appointed then sacked within three hours. It is said that Watt was added to the club’s WhatsApp group, however he was removed not long later after Glenn Tamplin found that he had criticised him when managing Margate. The owner has also put the club up for sale after being accused of snorting cocaine.

New man Dean Brennan has penned a three-year deal at Billericay and his first game will be Saturday’s match against Burnham in the FA Cup.


After the appointment was made, fans expressed their delight at the news, others quickly mocked how long he would be in charge for – check out that reaction on the next page.
