Hard to tell if there's other damage. If not, some lightly diluted PVA glue/woodglue and some rolling papers or tissue paper ought to make a good patch.

no there isnt any other damage that i can tell. It still works fine just earlier when the dustcap was still pushed in and had just torn i heard a rattle in the speaker and only just got to inspecting. would nailpolish work as i read in another post?
EDIT
Also badman what would you advise as the concentration of PVA glue to water. Would wood glue work?

Wood glue is PVA. Add about 10% water + or - to it.
