The side began in 2004, as local coach and cricketer Lara arranged an exhibition session for women cricketers at the Burbage Road ground but it was not until 2006 that a fully fledged women's section became a reality.
Players were recruited from within the club, by word of mouth, through links with local schools and the website. Some players came through the Southwark and Surrey youth development programmes. Many arrived new to the game and some players came with previous cricketing experience.During the first historic season, one match was played away at Caterham in September 2006 which was won by Caterham. 2007 saw more games and more players. The first match at Burbage Road was a 15 over fixture in June 2007 between the cricket and hockey sections. The bigger hitting hockey side, who fielded some players with cricketing experience, won by 44 runs.
