The family of Newcastle United favourite Pavel Srnicek have appealed to Newcastle fans for help.

The 47 year old Newcastle cult hero was out for a run on Sunday when he suffered a cardiac arrest.

The former United keeper remains in an induced coma as medical staff continue to monitor his condition at the Ostrava teaching hospital in the Czech Republic.

Via Pavel Srnicek’s own Twitter account, his family have appealed to fans to do their but to try and help Pav pull through.

His family have asked all supporters to sing ‘Pavel is a Geordie’ at half-time during today’s Newcastle v Everton match, with a recording then to be played to Pavek Srnicek at his bedside.

The message via Pavel’s Twitter account:

“Pavs family have requested fans to sing Pavel Is A Geordie at half time today so that it can be recorded and played to him at bedside.”

Like all Newcastle fans our thoughts are with Pavel and his family & friends, so sing it loud and proud at half-time.
