Billericay Town FC would like to respond to the statement just released by Ebbsfleet United, via their Club website regarding Sam Deering.
At no stage has any announcement, official or unofficial, been made by Billericay Town Football Club that Sam Deering has signed, or even has plans to sign for ourselves.
Sam is a family friend of Glenn Tamplin and both families are currently enjoying spending time together in Majorca. With the unprecedented media attention that BTFC is currently receiving, it is inevitable that should ANYONE be seen photographed with Glenn, this will cause speculation.
We are sad and disappointed for Sam Deering that this false information has been circulated via social media – a man of integrity, Sam is simply exploring all his options for next season and is entirely mindful that he remains under contract with Ebbsfleet until 30 June.
As a Club, we would, of course, be delighted to welcome Sam into the BTFC Family but we too have enormous integrity and respect Sam’s existing contractual commitment to Ebbsfleet.
From 30 June onwards, should Sam wish to enter negotiations with ourselves regarding a possible transfer, we would be delighted to do so.
BTFC hold Ebbsfleet’s management and players in the highest regard and hope this statement has clarified the matter.
