Glenn Tamplin has this week riled up fans after he revealed on social media that he would be leaving at half time during tomorrow’s match between Felixstowe & Walton United and Romford.
He posted on Twitter saying that he was to leave the game early as he had to catch a flight on Saturday night.
The Romford boss added that he was heading on holiday for a week with his family before the festivities begin.
His tweet read: “Saturday. I am off on holiday for a week on 8pm flight with my family so will be at the game for the first half and then will have to leave at half time no matter what the score.
“No doubt someone will spread lies why I left so saying it now
“The squad we now have is good ??”

His side currently sit bottom of the Isthmian League North Division table but still target a place in the playoffs, something they are 20 points away from.
It won’t be the first time Tamplin has left early as back in March 2018 when he was at Billericay Town, he left their Isthmian Premier Division game at Hendon 20 minutes before the end to go on a business trip, the club said.

“Glenn was always going to leave early due to having a flight to catch and is now away on business for the next few days,” said a club statement.
