Furious Tamplin puts Billericay Town up for sale

Glenn Tamplin has put Billericay Town up for sale.

Tamplin, who has reportedly invested more than £2.5million into the National League South outfit, says he has 'been pushed too far' and is stepping down.

He told The Echo: "The club is up for sale as of tomorrow as I can't take anymore. After the Woking game I was told by their chairman that the police wanted to speak with me.

"They told me they had received a report that I had been snorting drugs in the public toilets. I asked to be tested and they said they didn't have the test kits with them, I was then told I might be pulled over.

“I was pulled over 15 minutes later and to be asked if you have been taking drugs in front of your five-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son is not something I am willing to put my children through. Not for football."

Tamplin says he would be happy to accept an offer of £500,000 for his stake, if the club was left 'in the right hands'.

Tamplin purchased Billiercay in December 2016 and signed former Premier League players such as Paul Konchesky, Jamie O'Hara and Jermaine Pennant in the following months.
