There's some letters into this month'e kitchen garden mag about this and the general consensus was- live with it - but....

good hygeine, dispose of diseased plants in the bin or burn, not on the compst (oops )
use plenty of manure and build up your soils overall health
don't accept plants from other plots
lime before planting
sow in pots and pot on until a 5" or even 9" pot is needed then plant out in a limed hole. This give the plant a head start to develop the roots and overcome the club root.

Hope this helps
