Thread: Billericay Town

    Rooney joins Billericay....Ok, not that one, but Luke Rooney (Ex Gillingham and Swindon, he also played in the states along side Drogba).

    Sounds like Louie Theophanous is heading out the door in the opposite direction. Despite bagging 11 goals this season.

    One player that is wasted at Billericay is Sam deering, Billericays most consistent player and could still do a good job in league football.

    In them days you could follow a non league and not get abused for following a lower club and being not a true follower of Southend

    I went to all 3 too, and The Sheffield replay too.
    Doug Young got the first cup final hat trick since 66 in the Almondsbury Greenway 5 1 win . The third vase win in 4 years

    Agree, I'd say he's the best player by some way in that league (imo). Strange move as he was key in getting Ebbsfleet promoted last season up into Conference National and they known as big wage-payers.

    Yeah, I second that, they seem to hold him in high regard, hence them bringing in Rooney.

    Quote:

    “Luke is a quality player and he can make things happen,” said the Town head coach. “I think Luke is similar to Sam Deering in the sense that they are both capable of winning a game on their own. Intelligent players are able to play with each other and both of these boys are."

    “Sam can play with anyone and Luke is similar. He can play across the middle line, in the hole and in wide positions. I am sure they can link up well."

    Interesting the comments about Rooney since he's had a far from notable career to date. Flitted between umpteen clubs (often on loan) before ending up at a second-string outfit over the pond. Suggests to me 'ricay may well be about his playing level.

    I think that's still 'ok'. I don't give a hoot about Billericay as (a) I have no local connection and (b) Tamplin appears to be a total arsehead.

    However, I enjoy following the fortunes of Hemel Hempstead Town (close enough that I can hear crowd noise from my back garden!) as well as the Canvey sides.

    I find non-league in general can be a nice break from watching Southend - not the same highs, but no terrible lows if the team I am watching happen to lose!

    I agree - Ive watched Maidstone a few times and it's a decent ground.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    Feeñl the same way about watching Espanyol.Certainly a decent ground.No great lows if they lose.

    How many was he expecting for an Isthmian League Cup game?

    This weekend's FA Trophy tie should be a better test of where they are support-wise.

    He's going about it the wrong way, people who loves Billericay and care are already going to games so saying "you need to come or we won't survive" to a bunch of people who don't care is futile. He needs to attract more people and make them care. He should be telling everyone what great entertainment they will be getting for their money, I'm sure the goals per pound spent ratio there is very good and I've heard the facilities are pretty good for a club their size too.

    Played against the "Corinthian Casuals"..... Sounds like a proper old terrace firm from the 80's!!...Proper tasty encounter that was!!....(doing my Danny Dyer impression).....No surprise then that one of the Billericay players got concussed and got carted off in a ambulance.

    Tamplin announced the signing of the former Daggers captain Scott Doe this week, despite him already signing for Whitehawk. He then had to retract the announcement. Pretty farcical really!
