Čech rewarded by Chelsea

Czech international Petr Čech has put pen to paper on a contract extension with Chelsea FC, committing him to the English title-holders until 2010.

Record run
The Czech international goalkeeper has added two years to the four-year deal he signed when joining the London club from Stade Rennais FC in the summer of 2004. His first season in England was a triumph, as Čech helped Chelsea win the championship and English League Cup while setting a Premiership record by going 1,024 minutes without conceding a goal.

Trophy ambition
"I am very pleased," the 23-year-old said. "When I joined Chelsea I just wanted to get in the team and win some trophies. I managed that last season and have been rewarded with a new contract already. Now I want to win some more trophies."
