Controversial Billericay Town owner Glenn Tamplin quits club after Jamie O’Hara takes over as manager – The Sun

BILLERICAY TOWN owner Glenn Tamplin has quit the club.

The controversial 47-year-old has also stepped down as director at the Essex club – just days after appointing former Spurs star Jamie O'Hara as manager.

The club's website crashed after a statement was released of the sensational news.

Tamplin took over Town in December 2016, and has courted controversy during his time in charge.

He denied claims he snorted cocaine in the changing room rooms at Woking in 2018 – then responded to his treatment from police by vowing to sell Billericay.

Furious Tamplin denied taking drugs and released a recording of police stopping him in his car, when he complained of the stress caused to his two young children.

Tamplin promised to both help Billericay find new owners and reinstate the popular Harry Wheeler as manager, who he had just sacked.

But he then did a U-turn on offloading the club.

He famously appointed himself manager in 2017, before he sacked himself in February 2017 – only to perform a U-turn 48 hours later.

He again sacked himself in April, with Wheeler taking over and warned that he too would be sacked if the club were not promoted.
