FORMER OWNER of Billericay Town, Glenn Tamplin, has taken over at BetVictor Isthmian League North outfit, Romford.
Romford – currently bottom of the table with just five points – issued a statement on www.romforfc.com stating:
“Romford Football Club are pleased to announce that local businessman Glenn Tamplin has agreed to join the club, in a move that will secure both the clubs short term, and long term future.”
“Chairman Steve Gardener, continued the announcement, explaining:“The club have been struggling for some time now due to lack of finances and resources, and our aim of getting back to Romford in our own ground is a must, but myself and Colin Ewenson, are not in a position to drive the club forward and deliver the new ground.
“We have been looking for an investor to come on board, and with his previous experience, and success we are looking forward to being able to move the club forward.”
During his time at New Lodge, Tamplin helped bringt about success on the pitch as well as overseeing the redevelopment of the clubs ground.
The statement continued: “Glenn Tamplin said he was excited to become involved with Romford FC, and was looking to get back into football with a new challenge. Romford FC is a club with massive potential and myself Steve and Colin, want to realise that potential.”
Mr Tamplin’s personal Twitter account headed that he was now the ‘Owner of Romford FC’ – He, along with the clubs supporters, will be hoping that he can turn around the clubs fortunes over the coming months.
Romford returns to BetVictor Isthmian League North Division action on Saturday, November 16 when they face Coggeshall Town at Brentwood Town’s Arena (3pm).
