Glenn Tamplin will be staying as manager of Billericay Town until the end of the season having initially stepped down from the role following Saturday’s defeat in the FA Trophy quarter finals.
After losing back-to-back leagues games,Tamplin threatened to resign as manager of the Bostik Premier leaders if they were to lose again in the Trophy.
Tamplin followed through with the threat when Ricay were thrashed 5-2 at home by Wealdstone, telling The Echo: “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.
“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.”
However, a club statement has now confirmed Tamplin will be staying on as manager until the end of the season.
It read: “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.”
