Petr Cech finds new club after Chelsea exit as legendary keeper signs for ice hockey side Chelmsford Chieftains

PETR CECH has signed for NIHL side Chelmsford Chieftains.

The former Chelsea and Arsenal star left Guildford Phoenix earlier this year after three years with the Surrey outfit.

Petr Cech has signed a one-year deal with the Chelmsford Chieftains

Cech has joined the Chieftains on a one-year deal and his signing was announced ahead of the game against Oxford City Stars on Sunday.

The former goalkeeper, 40, made 20 appearances for Phoenix between 2019-2022 and helped them win the treble last year.

That included the NIHL Division Two South title, with Cech now playing in the tier above.

It means the ex-Czech Republic international will goaltend in the NIHL Division One South for the first time in his career.

Chieftains fans were excited bu the capture and for good reason, as Cech ended last season with a league-best goals-against average of 1.73.

One supporter reacted to the news saying: “Incredible signing.”

Another added: “Massive signing!! Big boots to fill but I have faith in the four-time Premier League and Champions League winner!”

And a third said: “Omg Petr Cech has signed!”


Upon signing for the club Cech said: “I’m excited for a new challenge with the Chieftains and I’m looking forward to helping the team reach their targets for the season.”

Cech’s move comes weeks after he left his role as technical director at Chelsea following Todd Boehly’s takeover.

The former Blues player returned to the club in an advisory capacity in 2019 but departed over the summer over a dispute over Romelu Lukaku’s future, with Cech opposing his loan switch to Inter Milan.
