Petr Cech saves two penalties on ice hockey debut for Guildford Phoenix

Cech on his debut at the Guildford SpectrumFormer Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech saved two penalties on his Guildford Phoenix debut to earn victory against Swindon Wildcats 2.The 37-year-old, still a technical adviser at Chelsea, saved Swindon’s first and last efforts in a shootout and was named man of the match. Phoenix trailed 2-1 after two periods but an equaliser from Taylor Wootton took the game into overtime.That ended goalless and led to the shootout in which Cech starred.The Czech, a big fan of the sport, has worked on his game after retiring from football at the end of last season. He announced he would be playing for Phoenix in National Ice Hockey League South 2 last week.At the time, he 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.”Cech, who made 124 appearances for the Czech Republic, won four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League during his time as a footballer in England.He will be the Phoenix’s third-choice keeper, and will train when his Chelsea schedule allows.
