....due to personal and work reasons.
Court, who has been in the post for six years jointly with Peter Osborne, has three children all of whom are involved with a number of aspects of sport and he has found it increasingly difficult to juggle football commitments with his family commitments. In addition the former Clanfield boss works shifts.
The club were quick to pay tribute to Court, who has served Clanfield in some capacity since the age of fourteen when he joined as a player and apart from a short spell has remained there ever since.
Joint-manager Osborne said: "It will be very strange for me for Jason not to be involved because we began playing for the club at about the same time and apart from a very short period when we both played elsewhere we have been team-mates and joint-managers together.
“He and his family have put in a great deal of work and effort for Clanfield over a long period of time and we do understand his need to help his three boys along in their own sporting careers. We thank him and wish him well."
Chairman John Osborne also paid his tribute to the outgoing joint boss: "Jason and his family have been involved with Clanfield Football Club for very many years and it will be very strange not to see him involved with team affairs on match days. He has been a good servant to the club."
Peter Osborne will take sole charge of the management duties and will be discussing the way forward with his `off-field` team of Martin Staddon, Jason Chipchase, Trevor Cuss and senior players.
