Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech stated he had been swapping football for hockey after registering to play for a British club group for a goaltender.
The 37-year-old Czech, who retired from playing in the summer, said that he had been reigniting his enthusiasm for a game he played as a child by penning a deal with all the Guildford Phoenix.
“I’m thrilled to have the chance to play the Phoenix to find the game encounter,” Cech informed the club website.
“I hope I will help this young staff to realize their aims for the entire year and try to win as many games as you can when I have the opportunity to play with.
“After 20 decades of professional soccer, this will be an excellent adventure for me to play with the sport I loved to play and watch as a child.” Guildford, who has been based in 2017 and located just south of London, is at the fourth grade of Britain’s hockey system.
