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.”
