Billericay Town have responded after the club appeared today on the Companies Court Winding Up List.

The National League South club were taken over in October by a local consortium of businessmen, with Glenn Tamplin’s well-publicised tenure coming to an end. Billericay have explained the winding-up order in a statement that reads as follows:

Earlier today, we were contacted by a couple of media sources for comment as the club appeared on the ‘Companies Court winding up list’. On investigation, this was an ‘unadvertised’ procedure relating to a debt from before the current consortium took control.

The club are in the process of dealing with all the creditors from that period and are comfortable that everything necessary is being done to resolve these past issues.

Billericay Town FC is stable and moving forward in the right direction both on and off the field,

Thank you for your continued support.
