Tributes are being paid to former Premier League referee, Paul Alcock, who has passed away at the age of 64.
Alcock took charge of 94 Premier League matches between 1995/96 and 1999/00.
"We knew that Paul had been ill for some time, but we are extremely saddened to hear of his passing," Mike Riley, Professional Game Match Officials Limited Managing Director, said.
"Paul enjoyed a distinguished career as a professional referee at the top level and was hugely respected by all involved in the game.
"More recently, Paul had been helping to develop the next generation of match officials as an observer, mentoring them during games.
"He will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with his family and friends."
