Just minutes after the full-time whistle on Saturday, Billericay Town owner and Chairman Glenn Tamplin quit as manager but has today re-instated himself as manager of the Isthmian Premier Division side.
Last Thursday after a midweek defeat Tamplin threatened to quit if his side lost in the FA Trophy Quarter Final against Wealdstone.
And he did. Moments after their 5-2 loss he demoted him to Assistant Manager but just 48 hours or so later after a series of meetings has appointed himself as manager.
An official statement says:
After two days of meetings with the players, coaching and internal staff after Saturday’s game we as a club have made a unanimous decision that Glenn Tamplin will see the club through as manager until the end of this current season.
The players have insisted Glenn stay on to see them through what has proved to be a low point for the club with 3 losses in 4 games.
With two cup finals and the league ours to lose the players insisted it can and will be a successful season but with Glenn in charge.
Glenn has high expectations and the demands he puts on himself are not always achievable and he knows the demands were elevating stress for himself and his players.
Harry Wheeler will be appointed Team Manager at the end of this season.
