Goalkeeper to goaltender: Peter Cech signs for ice hockey club”

'After 20 years of skilled football that is going to be an resplendent journey for me to play the sport I preferred to examine and play as a little bit one'.

He won 124 worldwide caps for Czech Republic and solidified himself as one of the best ever at his position, finally retiring from the sport after the 2018-19 season, having spent the last four years of his soccer career with Arsenal.

Hailing from Czech Republic, a country with a noted love for ice hockey, the 37-year-old hung up his boots at the end of last season but hasn't taken long to return to the sporting world, with Cech to make his debut this Sunday. "No I didn't", Cech said in a post on Twitter.

"When his Chelsea Football Club schedule allows, he is ready to help them in their league games", Chelsea explained on their website.

Despite Cech's lengthy hockey layoff, Guildford head coach Andy Hemmings said he is excited for him to hit the ground running.

"He has improved a lot since I first saw him on the ice and I am excited to see him play".

In August 2017, Cech appeared in a non-competitive game alongside hockey greats such as Jaromir Jagr and Zdeno Chara to celebrate the career of former NHL star Martin Havlat.

His new side ply their trade in the National Ice Hockey League Division 2 - a far cry from his new role as a technical and performance advisor at Stamford Bridge.

"But obviously, at that time, you would have to buy all the equipment so if you imagine the financial aspect of buying all the equipment and you grow up fast as a kid so then you need to keep buying it and we just couldn't afford it".
