Former Tranmere Club Commentator and avid Supporter Paul Rice has sadly passed away, aged 49.

Paul had been suffering from a long illness and leaves a wife, Jeanette and five children. We send our sincerest condolences, thoughts and respects to them as well as to the rest of Paul’s Family and to his friends.

Paul was the club Commentator during the famous Cup matches against the likes of Everton and Southampton around 5 years ago.

Loud, eccentric and bubbly on the mic’, he was 110% Tranmere Rovers.

Speaking to the Daily Post, Chairwoman Lorraine Rogers said ‘Paul’s commitment to Tranmere was fantastic. His passion for the club came through in those commentaries.’

A rather moving tribute Video to Paul can be seen here.

Goodbye Paul, you will be missed.
