Chelsea legend Petr Cech made his ice hockey debut for Guildford Phoenix on Sunday.

Cech produced a man-of-the-match performance as his penalty shootout saves helped his new team to a 3-2 victory against Swindon Wildcats 2 on Sunday.

According to Cech, his ice hockey debut for Guildford Phoenix is the realisation of a childhood dream and he insists no one will ever take it away from him.

“It is kind of a childhood dream to come and play one game, which has [now] happened,” said Cech, according to Sky Sports.

“Nobody will ever take this away from me, which is really nice.”

Cech also hopes his ice hockey debut can act as motivation to youngsters to believe in accomplishing their goals.

“If you have a dream and you chase it and you do everything to make it happen… I have done that in football and all my dreams have come true,” he added.

“I said, ‘this might be the last dream I was hoping to [tick off]’. But I worked hard for it.

“I think it can act as something for the young players to know that if you chase your dreams, then good things might happen.”
