Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts take home women's first grade premiership

A Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts women's premiership was a long time coming.

So long in fact, no current players were born when the club's women's team last held the trophy aloft.

Recent history was made when the Ghosts women's first grade was named Cricket NSW premier. It had been 31 years since the club last won a women's title.

The side won the premiership despite a ball not being bowled in Sunday's grand final against Gordon at Blacktown International Sports Park.

The match was abandoned due to rain, but the Ghosts won the title after finishing the regular season on top of the ladder.

Captain Hannah Trethewy told the Advertiser that it was great to win despite the "unfortunate circumstances".

"It would have been nice to play, but we're really happy," she said.

"No-one in our team was alive last time we won so it's really good for the club.

"We have always been known as a young team. The oldest player on our team is 28 while the average age would be 16 or 17."

Trethewy said the Ghosts were rewarded for showing excellent form throughout the season.

"It was difficult when we had key players leave due to things like the Women's Big Bash League, but our younger girls stepped up," she said.

"Isabella Greig, Hannah Darlington, Dharmini Chauhan and Steph Ellsmore were four young girls who really put their heart on the line for us.

"No matter who turned out for us, everyone performed really well."

Trethewy, who completes her first full season as captain, said the Ghosts had developed a great culture in recent years.

"We do have pretty good batters and bowlers, but it's our culture that has been getting us over the line," she said.

"I think this team will be scarily strong in the next five to six seasons."
