JASON Dozzell today quit as manager of Ipswich Wanderers as part of major shake-up at the Ridgeons League club.

JASON Dozzell today quit as manager of Ipswich Wanderers as part of major shake-up at the Ridgeons League club, writes Mel Henderson.

The former Ipswich and Tottenham star's decision came after a successful three-year stint with the Humber Doucy Lane outfit.

Dozzell, who continued his playing career with Wanderers, won the First Division title and last season they finished seventh in the Premier Division with a new record points tally.

He said: “I'm a bit gutted about it, but I just felt I had taken the club as far as I could. We'd got it right on the pitch, but it was frustrating that we couldn't seem to do the same off it.

“I'm off on holiday soon and when I get back I'll see what's best for Jason Dozzell. I hope something comes up.

“I had a very successful three years with Wanderers and it was time to move on. I had become a bit frustrated and even disillusioned, but I'm up for a new challenge elsewhere.”

Chairman David Bugg, assistant boss Kevin Cunningham and several players, including top scorer Rene Swann, are also leaving Wanderers.

Their likely destination is Needham Market, who lost manager Mark Morsley to AFC Sudbury last week and are bracing themselves for the departure of several others to accompany him.

Wanderers are now inviting applications for the post of manager. Anyone interested should contact Paul Crickmore on 07914 038568 or 01473 724011.
