Former goalkeeper Petr Cech has made a shock change of sport after signing for ice hockey club Guildford Pheonix until the end of the season.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea goalkeeper will be playing as a netminder for the Surrey-based club for the campaign and admitted he is delighted to make the switch to a new sport.

He said: 'I am delighted to have the opportunity to play with the Pheonix to get the match experience.

'I hope I can help this young team to achieve their goals for the season and try to win as many games as possible when I have the chance to play.

'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.'
