The always entertaining CUC Primary Football League Playoffs begin this weekend.
The matches on Saturday 5 January start at 9am at the TE McField Annex Field with games scheduled in the Under 9 and Under 11 Champions Cups only.
Due to the relatively small number of schools qualifying for this year’s Under 9 and Under 11 Consolation Cups, play will commence in these competitions the following Saturday 12 January.
Schools qualifying for this year’s Under 9 Champions Cup include 2011/12 runners-up Sir John A. Cumber Primary, St. Ignatius Prep, Savannah Primary and Cayman International School from Group A, and defending 2011/12 champions Cayman Prep, Red Bay Primary, South Sound Schools and NorthEast Schools from Group B.
Contesting for the Under 9 Consolation Cup this year will be defending 2011/12 champions George Town Primary and Truth For Youth from Group A, and Triple C, Prospect Primary and Bodden Town Primary from Group B.
In the Under 11 Champions Cup, last year’s runners-up and 2012/13 Opening Rally Champions Sir John A. Cumber, 2011/12 defending champions George Town Primary, St. Ignatius Prep and Grace Academy will represent Group A, and Cayman Prep, Red Bay Primary, Bodden Town Primary and NorthEast Schools from Group B.
Playing for the Under 11 Consolation Cup will be Cayman International School, Truth For Youth and Savannah Primary from Group A, and last year’s runners-up Prospect Primary, South Sound Schools and Cayman Brac representing Group B.
In the Under 9 Division, Cayman Prep and St. Ignatius Prep have yet to taste defeat this season. St. Ignatius Prep drew only one of their five regular season games on their way to topping Group A while Cayman Prep drew two games on their way to winning Group B. The two meet on the second day of the Playoffs on Saturday 12 January.
In the Under 11 Division, Group B winners Cayman Prep begin the playoffs with maximum points after going undefeated during the regular season scoring a total of 47 goals and conceding only one.
Group A winners and 2012/13 Opening Rally champions Sir John A. Cumber Primary also start the playoffs undefeated with the only blemish on their record being a 0-0 draw with St. Ignatius Prep on the final day of the regular season.
The two heavyweights will face each other at noon this Saturday.
