Goalkeeper Petr Cech dumps football for hockey

Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has swapped grass for ice by signing for National Ice Hockey League team Guildford Phoenix as a goaltender.

The Czech, a big fan of the sport, has got his skates on after working on his game since retiring from football.

"I hope I can help this young team achieve their goals," Cech, 37, said.

"After 20 years of professional football, this is going to be a wonderful experience for me to play the game I loved to watch and play as a kid."
