Crystal Palace fans demand the return of their matchday announcer

Crystal Palace fans are really missing their matchday announcer. At the start of the Premier League season Mike Rankine was suddenly removed from the position.

But fans aren't happy and say his replacements have "fallen way short of the standards Mike set during his time in the role".

Many supporters commenting that the overall matchday experience has worsened significantly over the past five months in his absence.

I have spoken with Mike and he has made it clear that he would consider returning to the role should the opportunity ever arise. He is a devout, knowledgeable Palace fan who took immense pride in his role as the 'Sound of Selhurst' since 2009.

'Fans of Crystal Palace Football Club' are spreading a word by getting as many people as possible to sign a petition. Miss Mike? Sign here.
