Billericay Town have confirmed the four members of the consortium that has recently taken over the club.
David McCartney, Greg Lake, Nick Hutt and Alex Morrissey are supporters who have been involved in the men’s, women’s, Colts’ and girls’ teams at the club for a number of years.
The consortium say: “It is early days, and the consortium must initially focus on the short-term requirements to enable the long-term goals to be reached, though, to give you an idea, the long-term plan includes further development of the existing facilities, to include the introduction of a 4G pitch and sports centre on the land behind New Lodge to give all teams a top-class training facility, and also for others in the community to benefit from.
“The introduction of a club academy to provide a pathway for our younger players to develop with the club. To develop the social side of the club outside of match days and open up the facilities to the community as a venue for events.
“To continue to build this club with the community at its heart and as the main driving force behind us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Glenn (Tamplin) for what he has given the club and community over the past three years.
“He has left the community with great memories and a ground that is second to none at our level of football. As can been seen from the reaction of the fans in recent days on social media, what he has achieved at this club will never be forgotten and puts us in a great place to bring this local football club forward for many years to come.”
