Tributes have been paid to the long-time 'voice of Peterborough United' who has died at the age of 81.

Edwin Overland, who joined BBC Radio Cambridgeshire in 1982, spent nearly three decades covering Posh alongside his passion for speedway.

He will be "truly missed by everyone", said a spokesperson for Peterborough United. 

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony led the tributes posted on the club's website.

"When I first joined the football club, Edwin was already the voice of Posh and that continued until his retirement," he said. 

"He was a lovely man and it was awful to hear the news when it came through. My thoughts are with his family at this sad time and we will do anything we can to support them."

Barry Fry, director of football, added: "I have been at the football club for 28 years now and, most of that time, Edwin was the man who not only commentated on the games, but also conducted the interviews after the games and before them, certainly when I was in charge.

"He was a great supporter and did a lot for the football club, so it is incredibly sad news.

"Edwin was always honest in his interviews, if he thought I was rubbish, he would say so and I respected him for that. 

"He will be sadly missed there is no doubt about that and my thoughts go out to his friends and family at this time."
