Nigel Spreadbury:

We have continued the steady development initiated by Luke Margetts growing what begun as a Girls squad into what is officially Capel Ladies. With additional coverage of female cricket within the media, combined with the firm foundations “kick started” by Luke, generated a local interest to further develop an All female all ages squad. In 2019 Capel CC had their first ever Ladies Squad. With numbers now totaling in excess of 25, we plan to move forward steadily and build upon team ethics, friendship and fun.

2019 saw the Capel Ladies compete for the first time against some local ladies teams, Newdigate, Westcott & Effingham, playing home & away winning 5 out of 6 matches, a fantastic start for the first season.

2020 was planned to be a great season with local rivalry against the previous seasons opposition, with the addition of playing a number of friendlies outside the county, but due to the Corona Virus, this was put on hold.

2021 has started well with good training sessions at Capel, with the promise of playing some matches with local rival teams as well as across into Sussex.

It is with great pleasure & thanks to LPM (Local Property Maintenance) for sponsoring the team. We hope to be sporting the new Capel Ladies Team Kit in all our matches this season.

We hold our Ladies Training night on Friday 6.15-8.00pm, if you ever thought, “I wonder what it would be like”, come and meet us, we don’t bite! Friendly with a good social side and lots of laughing…..

Cheers Spreaders
