KING'S Lynn are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our former long-serving announcer Edwin Overland.

Edwin had one of the most recognisable and authoritative voices in the sport, and he gave lengthy service to both the Stars and Peterborough - always maintaining 100 per cent professionalism earning him full respect between supporters of both clubs.

As a football commentator, he joined BBC Radio Cambridgeshire in 1982 and spent 40 years as the voice of Peterborough United, covering some of Posh's most memorable moments.

In speedway he was the trusted box announcer for all of the FIM major events which took place at the Adrian Flux Arena as well as the Stars' domestic fixtures.

He retired from football in 2022 but completed a final speedway season at both King's Lynn and Peterborough, and although he then stood down to look after his health, he made a one-off return to call the final race at the East of England Arena last October.

Very sadly Edwin passed away over the weekend and we send our condolences to his family and friends. He was a superb operator but above all a gentleman, and we will miss him.
