One of our aims this season was to bring out the competitive edge of CECC without losing the our USP of being the friendly and inclusive club. Thoughtful team management, more structure to training, and increased input from the the adult section, has increased our win rate on last year.
Like the adult section, each month we want to recognise CECC players who have shone (player of the month) and those magical moments in match play (moment of the month)
