Parr has enjoyed fruitful spells with Horndean and Hayling,m helping the latter establish themselves in the division.

Fareham chairman Bob Ralls said: 'The change of the manager has been taken due to the changes that the financial directors of the club have determined are essential for the future operation and development of the club.'

He added: 'The club recognise with appreciations and thanks Duncan for his commitment during this difficult time in the club's history.'
