Club announce their owner's departure

Romford have announced that owner Glenn Tamplin has parted ways with the club.

Tamplin took over as owner of Romford in November 2019, and oversaw a massive turnover of playing personnel in his time at the club.

In a statement, Romford explain:

'When Glenn Tamplin became involved in Romford FC in December 2019, no one could have predicted the events that were to unfold across the world.

This has affected everyone, families, businesses and the wider football community. After several conversations we have had with Glenn we have decided to go our separate ways. Glenn is now working and living abroad, and cannot devote the time required to push the club forward in the manner he wanted to.

We have parted as friends and wished each other well in what comes next. The club is grateful for Glenn's involvement at a time when the clubs survival was in question. We are pleased to also announce that the management team of Derek Duncan and Christos Mead, have agreed to stay with the club.

Once we have further information on the return to football we will update the supporters.'
