Tamplin and Romford go their separate ways

Pitching In Isthmian League North outfit, Romford has confirmed that businessman, Glenn Tamplin is no longer involved with the club.

The former Billericay Town owner and manager initially linked up with the Boro in a similar role in late 2019. However, global circumstances and a change of environment has led to the parties going their separate ways.

A statement posted by Romford Football Club explained:

When Glenn Tamplin became involved in Romford FC in December 2019, no one could have predicted the events that were to unfold across the world.

This has affected everyone, families, businesses and the wider football community. After several conversations, we have had with Glenn we have decided to go our separate ways. Glenn is now working and living abroad, and cannot devote the time required to push the club forward in the manner he wanted to.

We have parted as friends and wished each other well in what comes next. The club is grateful for Glenn’s involvement at a time when the clubs survival was in question. We are pleased to also announce that the management team of Derek Duncan and Christos Mead, have agreed to stay with the club.

Once we have further information on the return to football we will update the supporters.

After purchasing Romford in November 2019, Tamplin sacked manager, Paul Martin before taking the reins himself.
