Exeter Chiefs women’s side was first conceived in 2019, with the goal of securing a place in the 2020/21 Allianz Premier 15s league through the tendering process, which proved successful in April 2020.

The coaching team of Head Coach Susie Appleby and Amy Garnett have seen it all at international level as players. Appleby, a former scrum-half joined the club as Head Coach having previously held the same role at Gloucester-Hartpury, whilst for Amy Garnett, it is her fist foray into coaching, having become the first England Women’s player to reach the milestone of 100 caps for her country. Amy also started in each World Cup final.

Plans for recruitment were made all the more difficult thanks to a global pandemic, with Head Coach Susie Appleby forced to sell the vision of the club to prospective players over Zoom. Despite this, the Chiefs have recruited strongly, with the side blending international stars and talented local players.

Captained by Dutch international Linde Van der Velden, they have gone from strength to strength in their debut season, training and playing in the familiar surroundings of Sandy Park.
