NEW Billericay Town joint first-team manager Harry Wheeler says his partnership with Glenn Tamplin will be a success...because of their differing personalities.
Club owner Tamplin installed himself as manager following the departure of Craig Edwards at the start of March.
But he has now appointed Wheeler as joint manager, just two weeks after he linked up with Town as Head Coach.
And the former Welling United and St Albans City caretaker manager said he is excited at what the Ryman Premier League team can achieve.
“I was brought in as head coach and to organise the team tactically in terms of formation and the style of play,” said Wheeler, 28.
“I am looking at recruitment and I have already targeted five players we are set to bring in over the summer.
“I haven’t been here long - my first session was only two Thursdays ago - but the main thing is the potential.
“Glenn is a good businessman and a motivator. To work with someone that is ‘all in’ as he is can only spur the team on.
“We will look to win the league next season. The fans were brilliant on Monday and we want to repay their faith.
“We are very different and that is why it works well. We have the same ideas about where we want this club to go and how we want to play.
“We are very different in terms of character but we respect each other and have worked well together since I have been here.”
Wheeler is a UEFA A licenced qualified coach, and he says he was the youngest person in Europe to hold the qualification when he got it aged 23.
Only 24 hours before he was appointed Town head coach, he was plying his trade at Welling United in the National League South.
But the former Dagenham & Redbridge coach quit and was approached by Town the following day, and he now wants to make every second count.
“It is very important time at the club,” added Wheeler, who was also caretaker manager at St Albans City. “We are making it very professional but our actions must match the message. The results are what matters.”
