On the 15th August 2022, the club announced the following 

"Anthea Kaptein has departed Exeter City Women after a successful three year spell. 

The midfielder made forty two appearances in Red and White, scoring sixteen times. Kaptein signed for the Grecians in 2019, arriving from Marine Academy Plymouth, and her quality in positively effecting games was soon evident. A regular contributor of goals from her midfield role, she has been a key member of the team's successful return to the fourth tier of Women's Football. Tee, as she is better known, will be missed within the City squad after forging strong friendships, the Armed Forces Midfielder undeniably leaves with everyone's best wishes. Abbie Britton, City Joint Manager, reflected on Tee's time at Exeter City. “Tee has been a great servant to our Club and a big part of what we have achieved in recent years. We all wish her well.”
