Harry Wheeler sacked from Billericay

Billericay have parted ways with First Team Manager Harry Wheeler.

Whispers came out on Sunday afternoon and now strong sources have confirmed the news. A Billericay statement is expected in the morning.

It is a surprising decision as Billericay had started the season well gaining 13 points from their first six games but defeat at Chippenham Town on Saturday has clearly upset the chairman who seems to think that his side will win every game.

The club has only suffered one defeat in the last 29 games.

Some rumours even say that he was sacked via text message during the defeat to Chippenham.

The 30 year old had been in charge of the now National League South side since April 2017 after leaving Welling United.

Harry gained a UEFA A-Licence when he was 23 becoming the youngest person to do so. That record had previously been held by Andre Villas Boas. He had been a player at Stevenage Borough, Hampton & Richmond Borough and St Albans City before deciding to take his coaching badges. Harry became first team manager at his hometown club, St Albans City, aged just 26. This possibly makes him the youngest manager in Conference history.

Next up for Billericay is a Bank Holiday home tie with St Albans. Tristan Lewis could lead the side for that game or possibly even Glenn Tamplin himself.
