Petr Cech pleased with ice hockey debut for Guildford Phoenix.

Former Arsenal and Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech expressed his delight following his ice hockey debut for Guildford Phoenix.

The 37-year-old, now technical advisor for the Blues, was happy that his childhood dream came to pass and was pleased his man-of-the-match performance led to a 3-2 victory against Swindon Wildcats 2 on Sunday.

Cech signed for Phoenix (a National Ice Hockey League South 2 side) last week after his retirement from professional football at the end of last season.

"It is kind of a childhood dream to come and play one game, which has [now] happened," said Cech as reported.

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

The Champions League winner also gave a very important piece of advice to young players, saying if they chase their dreams, good things might happen.

"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."
