Roger Williams, chairman of the struggling Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division side, said Blatchford stepped down after talks on Sunday morning.
The move came less than 24 hours after Liskeard went down 3-1 at Godolphin Atlantic, their tenth defeat in 12 league games this season.
Mr Williams said: “We thank Paul for all of his efforts but we both agreed the time was right to make a change.”

Second team boss Martin McHugh will be in temporary charge until a new manager is appointed.
Liskeard are second from bottom of the premier division and club officials appeared concerned that some players did not want to play for the manager.
Only last month Liskeard announced that they were struggling to maintain two football teams because of the shortage of people to run them, and they were seriously considering the option of withdrawing from the Peninsula League.
A plea for help from the local community seemed to fall on deaf ears, but Mr Williams said the committee were looking at all ways to continue.
