Just two days ago Billericay Town manager and Chairman Glenn Tamplin posted on social media that he would QUIT if they lost their FA Trophy Quarter Final to Wealdstone – and after losing 5-2 – he kept his promised and quit.
Tanplin told the media, “When I asked the players to give up a week’s wages for the way they have performed in the last seven days they didn’t consider me,” said Tamplin. “Why should I consider them?
“I will stick with the squad. I will see the season out as assistant manager but I am so frustrated.
“I have spent more than two million on this club and all I wanted was players to donate a week’s wages after their performances in the past week. Only seven or eight said they would.
“They are not matching my investment. We are not getting the results for what I am paying, so I am stepping down.”
Tamplin added he would still have a presence at games until the rest of the season.
