King's Cambridge won their 5th title today, reinforcing their position as the dominant force of chess in the county. Last season's champions, JCB, had to settle for second as they overtook St Faith's who, despite finishing 3rd, can boast that they defeated the champions on the last day of the season. Please see the Dates page for next year's matches and put them in your diaries. Have a great summer and we'll see you in the autumn.
King's seem to have sewn up yet another title. They are now 5 points clear of St Faith's with just 3 games left, meaning St Faith's would need to beat them 5.5-0.5 in the next meeting just to close the gap. Stranger things have happened, but realistically the battle for second is going to be the talking point of the final round of matches with JCB chasing Faith's down.
It's tight at the top! Just two and a half points separate the top three with St Faith's still needing to play both King's and JCB. The crunch matches are coming up in 2022. Everyone at the CCC would like to wish you a joyful holiday period and a happy new year.
Last season's top 3 have formed a breakaway group as we approach the halfway point in the season. King's have placed themselves in the driving seat with a 4-2 win over main rivals JCB. St Faith's sit second but have dropped a lot of points against other teams so their title chances are slim.
