Billericay Town have been handed a blow with the news captain Paul Konchesky has left the Bostik Premier side.
The 36-year-old full-back, who has played for the likes of Liverpool, West Ham and Fulham, joined Glenn Tamplin’s side in March before helping them win the Isthmian League Cup.
However, despite an impressive spell in Essex that saw him become a fans favourite, Konchesky has decided to leave Billericay – 36 hours after scoring in the club’s penalty shoot-out win over Heybridge Swifts in the Velocity Trophy.
Paul it’s hard to comment on twitter after our days of discussions but we both understand why this is now the time for you to hang up your boots and as I said your a great ambassador for Billericay and I hope we find a way for you to stay involved I really do. ????????????????

Billericay head coach Harry Wheeler echoed Tamplin’s sentiments, telling The Echo: “It has been a pleasure working with Paul.
“He is a brilliant professional and has been a great example to the other players. He has been pivotal in many games we have won this season and he will be missed at the club.
“We respect and understand his decision and wish him all the best. We hope we will see him down at the club real soon. He is always welcome and part of us.”
