It has been confirmed that Glenn Tamplin will remain in the dugout at newly promoted Billericay Town.
The owner, who appointed himself as manager last March, gave the job over to current boss Harry Wheeler ahead of the new campaign.
After Billericay won the triple, Isthmian Premier League, Essex Senior Cup and Isthmian League Cup, Tamplin will remain on the sidelines as Wheeler’s assistant manager.
Tamplin said: “Harry and the boys have asked me to come back because they’ve seen what I have done at the club and they believe I’m the final piece of the jigsaw.
“As a result, I’m back as the No.2. I won’t be dressed in the training gear and I’ll be what they call a suit manager.
“I was a sledgehammer that didn’t work last year. I want to be there as a rock and be there when it goes wrong. I’m completely the opposite to what I was last season.
“I’ve said sorry to Harry and the lads and put everything right.
“Harry is in charge because he is an amazing manager. The club is very lucky and blessed to have Harry as manager.
“I am the assistant manager and Danny Hazle is the No.3. We have said that to the players.
“Harry and I will pick the side together and it always has to be picked together, but if there are two players fighting for the same spot in the team then Harry gets the final say.”
“I won’t find it difficult to take a little bit of a backseat because I nearly cost us the league last season due to my style.
“I will be doing things the right way and Harry deserves the job, whereas I don’t.
“Harry is a far better manager than I will ever be.”
