We have passed the halfway point in the season with King's Cambridge and St Matthew's continuing to fight for supremacy. St Matthew's have opened up a slender 1.5 point lead with six matches left. The bronze medal is shaping up to be another head-to-head with King's B and St Faith's tied for third. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at the CCC.
This season is shaping up be a two-horse race between four times champions King's Cambridge, and St Matthew's who are seeking their first trophy; just one point separates the two. The battle for third place is also hotting up and is very tight with many schools chasing a medal. See you all on 30th November for the last matches of 2019.
