Former teammates attend funeral of ex-Newcastle keeper Srnicek

Mourners attended the funeral of the late Pavel Srnicek on Monday.

The former Newcastle United goalkeeper passed away last week after suffering a cardiac arrest when jogging in his home town of Ostrava in the Czech Republic on December 20.

Srnicek was a popular figure in the football world and especially at St James' Park where he was an integral member of the team between 1991 and 1998.

The funeral of the 49-time Czech international was held on Monday and in attendance were former Magpies colleagues Steve Harper and Steve Howey as well as ex-West Ham United teammate Ludek Miklosko.

During his playing career, Srnicek also spent time with hometown club Banik Ostrava, Sheffield Wednesday, Brescia, Cosenza, Portsmouth and Beira-Mar.
