Congratulations to St Matthew's, who become the CCC champions for the first time, dethroning King's Cambridge in a nail-biting finalé to the season. It has been a wonderful year with over 1000 games of chess played over five Saturdays. Dates for next season can be found on the Dates page, so please put them in your calendars. The CCC committee would like to thank all the children, parents and coaches who make this league possible. Have a great Easter and summer, and we'll see you in October.


There are two thrilling scraps going on at the top of the table. In the race for the gold, just half a point separates King's Cambridge A and St Matthew's, with the same margin separating King's Cambridge B and St Faith's in the battle for the bronze. The final matches on 29th February will settle everything.


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.
