Peter Cantrell, the Netherlands coach, has stepped down despite the national board wanting him to remain in charge.
Cantrell's contract effectively expired when Netherlands were knocked out of the World Cup last month, and he explained that he had reached the decision for personal reasons. He said he found it increasingly hard to combine his duties with the national team with his job as golf instructor.
The news follows retirement announcements by Luuk van Troost, the captain, and Tim de Leede.
