  • England Hockey National Tournament - 04/05/23 - Nottingham Hockey Centre

    Published 23/05/23, by Megan Innes

    The Year 9 hockey team have had a very successful season having won the district league and the Midlands finals. As a result of their success, the team were entered into the National Hockey Tournament held at Nottingham Hockey centre on the 4 May.

    They travelled up to Nottingham in the morning for a day of hockey. A tightly packed schedule of 6 matches against schools from as far south as the Isle of Wight, to the North of Derbyshire awaiting. We travelled in the minibus with motivational tunes playing all the way the squad were excited and ready. Excitement grew as we arrived, and the scale of the event dawned. Six full size hockey pitches circling a club house, made a fine setting.

    The group of 9 players have developed as individual players and as an effective team over the season and put together some well-coordinated and high quality plays. The team played some very strong opposition and put the defence under significant pressure. The assertiveness and commitment from Isobel. S, Mia. S and Radhika. M in defence to keep the score line low was exceptional. Emily M, from Y8 has had a fantastic year as the goalkeeper and has performed well beyond her years to make some very exciting saves during the tournament. Like the defensive play, the attacking performance got better and better though the tournament with many attacks being created by Ellie. S.

    Weaving in and out of the opposition, great vision to release passes to the high forward Lucy. K, who relieved the pressure many times to receive the ball high up the pitch creating some super opportunities on goal against some very strong opposition, as well as some lovely accurate crosses to the back post. Another assertive player making great efforts in attacking and defensive play was Kiara. K. Last ditch tackles, never giving up on tracking back with a player or driving forward into space and having a significant influence on the play. The consistent and persistent efforts from midfield/wings Liv. S and Felicity. R. The distances covered by these two players, sometimes without receiving the ball, but to keep creating the opportunities was commendable.

    With some games back to back the intensity was high. Rotating the players on and off the bench was managed well with the squad being supportive both on and off the pitch. CCS played their final match against the eventual winners of the tournament. By far this was the most impressive performance from the squad. The quality of the tackles, the communication and back up play was fantastic and really limited the opposition’s opportunities in front of the goal. Early on, CCS had an opportunity to score with a high pass from Ellie. S made to Lucy. K who narrowly missed. The high intensity continued throughout the game. The squad should be really proud of how the approached the high level of challenge and the quality of their performance. We are also very proud of how they conducted themselves at the tournament and how they responded to some difficult opposition.

    The team finished 6th overall in the National A tournament.

    Players player: Isobel. S

    Coaches’ player: Emily. M and Kiara. K

  • U16 Boys County Cup Football Final - 03/05/23

    Published 04/05/23, by Megan Innes
    Match report by Coach Mr Rich

    A fine sunny day greeted the players of both teams at Wellingborough Town for the final of the U16’s County Cup. 

    The pitch was in fantastic condition and both teams were well-prepared for a difficult game. 

    The opening exchanges were fairly even with CCS beginning to get on top of possession. Captain J. Rayfield beginning to conduct things in the middle of the park, with A. Evans a clear threat out wide. 15 minutes in J. Rayfield block tackle turned through ball and found T. Allen who rounded the keeper and slotted the ball into an empty net. 1-0 CCS.  

    The next period of the game was relatively even with CCS forcing some good defensive work from Latimer. Will this pressure be rewarded? With half an hour gone a CCS corner was cleared, and the ball fell to full back J. James, he met the ball at pace and slammed it towards goal. The ball flew into the top corner beating the outstretched arm of the keeper. What a goal! 2-0 and that’s how it remained until the break! 

    2-0 @ Half time. 

    Latimer started the second half well, and were playing some good football. They deservedly got back into the game albeit from an unforced error from CCS. 2-1. This goal gave Latimer a renewed belief, and they piled on the pressure. J. Bedford stood strong in the CCS goal with one big save from a 1 on 1. As the half went on, CCS just couldn’t get a grip on the game and were conceding possession far too easily. CCS continued to be a threat on the counter-attack and T. Allen scored his second of the game with a neat finish at the back post. 10 minutes remaining and CCS lead 3-1. Will that be enough? 

    Latimer continued to throw players forward and were rewarded with a couple of minutes to go.  A long ball forward into the box was met by their centre half and his header looped over Bedford in goal. Can CCS get over the line and hold strong for the final minutes of the game? 

    CCS finished the half strong and sealed the victory. 

    County Cup Champions!

    A game of two halves, CCS on top in the first and Latimer on top in second! Final Score 3-2 to CCS 🏆 

    This is a fantastic achievement for this group of players and one that they fully deserve following an impressive season. All the names listed below have been involved over the course of the season in all competitions, and they finally have a trophy to show for it! 

    It’s been a pleasure to oversee their development, and I am very proud of their achievements. Well done boys 💪🏻

  • U16 Boys County Cup Rugby Final - 27/04/23

    Published 28/04/23, by Megan Innes
    Match report by Coach Mr Colman

    The Year 11 rugby team, supported by 3 Year 10 players, travelled to Rushden and Higham RUFC on Thursday 27 April to play Wollaston School in the County Cup Final. The team are current holders of the county cup and were keen to retain their crown and this became evident direct from the kick off where Vinnie M chased the kick off, gathered the ball and run in for a try under the posts which Monty M converted to make it 7-0 within the first minute; a dream start.

    Reality soon kicked in as CCS made several unforced errors to allow Wollaston to progress up the pitch. CCS worked hard in defence with the back 3 of Alfie E, Dan G and Matt P keeping the wings secure and forcing Wollaston to go the direct route, however the pressure eventually told with Wollaston crashing over through their strong Number 8. 7-7. 

    CCS found it difficult to maintain possession and gain territory following the re-start and gifted Wollaston their second try to make it 7-14. The CCS forwards eventually managed to string several phases together, with strong carries from Toby A and Reuben K and excellent support play from Monty M, Tudor C, Loki C, Harry B and Isaac M ensuring that the ball was recycled quickly for Josh T who found the ever alert Max M, and he rampaged over the line to make it 14-12. Vinnie slotted the conversion on the stroke of half time to make the score 14-14.  

    CCS knew they had the wind with them in the second half and the game strategy was agreed; play the game in their 22m area. Sometimes plans don't always work! Wollaston started the half very strongly and the "plan" was momentarily put on the back burner as CCS reverted to defensive duties. CCS had to show resilience and determination to once again come from behind. The midfield trio of Vinnie M, Harley M and Dylan C worked their socks off in attack and in defence, however the opposition crashed through once more to make the score 21-14. Lesser teams might have capitulated at this point, however this team began playing the territory game. CCS had a try disallowed but still they maintained composure. The game was now "one way traffic" with CCS repeatedly threatening the opposition try line. Their perseverance was finally rewarded with Reuben K rumbling through their pack, bouncing players off and grounding the ball under the posts. The conversion was missed, meaning CCS were two points behind (21-19) with 10 minutes on the clock. Second half wingers, Greg P and Jacob L picked up in defence where Alfie E and Matt P had left off, stopping Wollaston running around the CCS flanks. Ethan D made a late crash ball attempt for the try line but wasn't able to ground it. The clock was running down. Isaac M continued to instil belief in his team-mates, leading from the front and maintaining possession up front. When the pressure was on, up stepped Vinnie M who had stepped in at Number 10, received a slick pass from Josh T and took on the Wollaston entire back line, crossing over to put CCS ahead 26-21. Wollaston were not finished yet and attacked with venom. The CCS team defended as one, repelling attack after attack. With 1 minute on the clock, CCS had to defend a lineout on their own 5m line. This was the opportunity Wollaston had been waiting for but Max M put in 2 magnificent hits on ball carrying players, eventually forcing the mistake and therefore the final whistle blew.

    A great effort from every player involved and a special mention to injured player Harry W who helped organise the team and keep up team morale throughout the game.

    Final Score - CCS 26 - 21 

    Player of the Match:- Vinnie M

  • Year 10 netball success!

    Published 19/04/23, by Megan Innes

    Many congratulations to the Year 10 netball team who have won the South Northants Netball League.   The team have worked well together and played some wonderful netball against some strong opposition from other schools in the South Northants league.

    The main strength of this team is the ability of so many of the players to play in different positions across the netball court.   This versatility undoubtedly has given the CCS squad such strength and as a team we have been rewarded with the league title.

    Special mention to P Hollis and E Burdett who have captained the team this year and have been brilliant in ensuring we have a full team for every match we have played.

The top scorer of the night was Blake and the player of the night goes to Owen, who had a really tough battle in the first game, but showed fantastic perseverance and determination and came back strongly in the final games.

  • Year 9 Boys District Football v Sponne AWAY - 27/03/23

    Published 29/03/23, by Megan Innes

    So far this season the boys have won every game in the league and fallen at the semi-final stage in the County Cup, so a really strong season so far! On Monday 27 March, we travelled to Sponne to finish our District League season with a different looking squad due to illnesses and injuries.

    The match itself started off evenly with not many chances in the first half. C.Seaman, our usual attacker was filling in goal and had to be called into action a few times to keep the score at 0-0 until half-time. In the 2nd half, with changes being made to formation and the line-up, CCS broke the deadlock with some excellent play by L.Abello out wide providing an assist for M.Gyan to head home. Goals for L.Campbell and J.Bedford twinned with another assist for L.Abello sealed the win with CCS comfortably seeing out the remainder of the game.

    An excellent 2nd half performance on a difficult pitch finishes off the district campaign in style with the Y9 boys winning the South Northants District League winning every game  Final Score Sponne 0 – 3 CCS.

  • U14 Girls Football County Cup Final - 23/03/23

    Published 27/03/23, by Megan Innes
    Match report by Mrs Evans:

    I am so happy to announce the U14 girls won the County Cup final by penalties! It was a very intense game with large amounts of rain! The girls showed so much determination and resilience to not give up and become victorious.

    The girls started by going down a goal to nil. They didn’t drop their heads and came back to finish the first half 2-1.

    The 2nd half we then lead 3-1, but Latimer were not giving up. They scored with 10 minutes to go to make the score 3-2! 

    The girls battled to keep the lead, but Latimer managed to score in the last 5 seconds of the game, the whistle was in the referees mouth! The girls finished the game 3-3.

    Into extra time, the girls needed more motivation than ever, with new players on the pitch and many of the team tired from the first game the girls did CCS proud to keep the score clear. The decider would now be penalties! 

    Never a good way to end a final but a real experience for the girls to perform under pressure. A much needed 'you can do this' talk and the continuing calls from me telling them I know they could do it… and they proved me right! All of our girls scored their penalties and Isobel C our goalkeeper saved one making the final score 5-4 to CCS! 

    A massive thank you as well to my Sixth Form Assistant Coach Zoe B who has coached and supported this team since September. Without the help of the Sixth Formers, I would find the running of so many teams and girls at training very difficult. Zoe was part of the winning U16s team last year and was brilliant and helping motivate and coach the girls through a high pressured event! A massive thank you from me to her! She is in the team photo above. 

    This is now the 7th Year CCS Girls football have held a title in the county cup football tournaments!!!!! 5 times now for U14 and twice for U16s. The trophy is back where it belongs for another year.  The whole PE Department are super proud of them all! 

    Managers player: Kyla S- incredible talent on the pitch and 2 goals!
