Clarke, who was appointed just days before the start of the 2010/11 season after the departure of predecessor Chris Carr, led his team to a twelfth-placed finish, with nine wins from twenty-eight matches.
He said: "It is with great regret that I am standing down from my post as manager of Trowbridge Town.
“I would like to thank the chairman, committee, supporters, players as well as my friends and family for the support they have given me this year.
“It has been an honour to lead Trowbridge this year, one which I’m very grateful to have been given the opportunity to do.
“I wish the club success in the future.”
Chairman Ralph McCaldon said: “It is with great regret, that I can confirm I have accepted Clarky’s resignation.
"He has been a real asset to the club and although it is his intention to continue to have an involvement within the running of the club, as a member of the Executive Committee, his undoubted managerial skills will be missed from our senior set-up.
"Allan has given me clear reasons for his decision, which I know he agonised over for some time and which revolve around his personal family commitments.
"Both myself and all of the officers of the club entirely understand his need to put his young family first.
"It is a shame, as far as the club is concerned, as a lot of progress has been made over the season and there is now a clear structure and plans for the club's development over the coming years.
"However, Clarky can feel satisfied, that he is leaving his role as first team manager, with a solid foundation for his successor to build on.
"I would personally like to thank Clarky for all his hard work and commitment this year, and I know he will continue to impact on the club's future success in his executive role.
"The club will spend some time taking stock of the situation, before deciding on the best way forward.
"We will be looking to the long term and hope to get someone who shares our vision for the club and is willing to commit in helping to build Trowbridge Town FC into the success our county town deserves.”
