For the past few years, legendary former English Premier League goalkeeper Petr Cech has been playing semi-professional hockey in the United Kingdom.

Cech has been a fan of the game of hockey since he was really young and over the weekend, one of his dreams came true as he made his professional debut with Northern Irish club, the Belfast Giants, who play in the Elite Ice Hockey League.
The 41-year-old was loaned to the Giants as the team was dealing with some injury issue and with less than five minutes remaining in their game against the Glasgow Clan, Cech was put in net and made one save as Belfast won the game.
"From the pitch to the rink ⚽️ 🏒

Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech made his professional hockey debut for the Belfast Giants (EIHL) at the age of 41 👏"


For those who aren't familiar with who Petr Cech is, the Plzen native spent 20 years playing professional soccer, or football as they call it all over the world, with some massive clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal, winning the Premier League title four times.
Cech has also made 124 appearances on the international stage for his country, Czech Republic, including at the 2006 FIFA World Cup and three UEFA European Championships.
