Former Yeovil Town midfielder Malcolm Beck had been in charge of Somerset County League Division One side Fry's Club for the last four years, but has not been invited to continue in the position next season.
"I'm very disappointed," said Beck. "To say I was surprised with the reason I was given when a sked to leave would be an understatement.
"To be asked to resign because you are too professional in your approach is very disappointing and doesn't really send out a positive message for the players left at the club."
Club chairman Alan Taylor, who has given reserve team manager Rob Mallet the nod to replace Beck at the helm, said: "Malcolm is not on a contract so he hasn't been sacked at all.
"We have taken a tough decision to take the club forward in a different direction and Malcolm was informed in person.
"He leaves with our best wishes for his future career as well as our gratitude for the way he has raised the standards on and off the pitch over the last four years.”
Beck has a proven track record with several clubs including Toolstation Western League sides Welton Rovers, Shepton Mallet and Odd Down as well as Paulton Rovers.
He was a very experienced player which included a transfer fee of £1,000 from Welton to Yeovil back in the 1970s. He also played for Paulton Rovers, Odd Down, Trowbridge Town, Forest Green Rovers and Frome Town.
