GLENN Tamplin is continuing to finance Billericay Town despite being out of the country, according to chairman Dan Groves.

Billericay owner Tamplin is having treatment in the United States while Billericay continue their bid to earn back-to-back wins in order to reach the top flight of non-league football.

But Groves released a statement confirming the National League South outfit are in the process of forming a board.

Groves said: “Glenn has asked me to let you all know that he is currently in America having treatment for burnout but is in constant contact with me in helping with the current restructuring at the club.

“Glenn has invested significant time and money since taking ownership of the club and he remains committed to continue with the progress made to date.

“The facilities the club now have are among the best in non-league football and we have put the club in a strong position going forward for many years.

“We have recently had to make changes in order to restructure the club to get a balance in the finances.

“Glenn is still continuing to finance the club from his own personal wealth, but it needs to come to a point where it can survive within its own means.

“This is something we have always said we would strive to achieve.

“To this end, the club is in the process of forming a board including local businessmen and investors who will meet on a regular basis and form a business plan, making decisions in the best interests of the club to ensure that it is sustainable and has a solid footing going forward.”
