Jermaine Pennant: Billericay Town set to sign former Arsenal and Liverpool winger”

Since then he's been around the block, with an esoteric CV that lists Stoke City, Wolves, Real Zaragoza, Pune City (India), Wigan Athletic, Tampines Rovers (Singapore) and Bury as former employers.

The 34-year-old, who spent time playing for Bury last season, has chose to join the Isthmian League Premier Division side who made headlines earlier this year when they signed Paul Konchesky and Jamie O'Hara.

The former England Under-21 worldwide joins the club, that already has former Premier League stalwarts Paul Konchesky and Jamie O'Hara on the club's books.

Pennant, who had been on trial with Scottish Premiership side Hibernian, is expected to turn out for Billericay in their pre-season friendly against Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Tamplin bought the club a year ago and is spending close to £30,000-a-week in wages to try and fire Billericay to promotion - and ultimately the Football League.

Perhaps we should run a sweepstake on how long it will take before the great Billericay bubble goes pop?

"We all know he is a top player".

"Jermaine's ability will make us even stronger and his experience will help our younger players reach the next level".
