Since making his debut in 1997, Rich has been an ever present member of the club. Son of founder member Steve Fell, Rich was elected Captain in 2008,  proving himself to be an extremely astute tactical Captain. Often making decisions in the field that would change the course of a game.

His Captaincy years were at a time when the Club was struggling for players, but every week he somehow managed to get 11 players onto the pitch. Without his dedication, the club may not have survived. Despite these challenging times, his first seven games as Captain were all victories, while in 2008 the team remained unbeaten until the first week in  September…(another club record)

Individually, Rich has completed the 50/5 for double, has been Fielder of the Year six times, A Clubman of the year winner, while in 2016 joined a select group of players to make his 200th appearance for the club.

Fell also has over 2,000 runs to his name, and is closing in on becoming only the second player in club history to take 100 catches. (Current total as of end of 2019 season 97)
