Glenn Tamplin set to takeover new club after leaving Billericay

Glenn Tamplin is set to takeover a new club according to reports after he left Billericay Town earlier this year.

He left the National League South side in September after receiving abuse from his own club’s fans, but also after failing to get them that promotion.

Tamplin failed in his goal to do a Salford City in taking Billericay to the Football League, but now he’s desperately wanting to get back in the football world.

Sources have said to Echosport that Chelmsford City, from the same league as his former Ricay side, are favourites for him to takeover.

It is also mentioned that he will be in attendance for their game against Dorking Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Braintree & Whitham Times say he’s been in contact with numerous clubs.

Tamplin said: “Due to the fact I couldn’t fulfil my ambitions at Billericay Town and get them into the Football League, I am currently in talks with numerous clubsn.

“I am gutted that I couldn’t guide Billericay into the Football League but I had to leave the club because some of the negative comments aimed at me and family members by the minority of Billericay fans was hard to swallow but, nevertheless, it still came from Billericay fans.

“Even after being hurt by my own fans, I still paid more than £150,000 to pay players to leave the club and walk away from their contracts without taking action against the club.

“I handed the club over to local businessmen without there being any debts against players or problems with the players that the club could not afford to pay themselves.

“I’m already missing football and want to get involved in football again. I will be going to watch a football club tomorrow.

“I’ve spoken to the new business owners at Billericay and they want to carry the club forward themselves.

“They want to move forward without me, which I fully understand.

“I have walked away having invested more than £2million because I now know it’s in very good hands and will be sustainable for the future as always promised.”


After finding out which club Glenn Tamplin could be owning next, fans took to give their reaction with many feeling sorry for the National League South side – see those tweets on the next page.
