LONDON, SEPT 23: Former England international Sue Redfern is set to become the first woman to stand as an umpire in a men's first-class match in England and Wales.

Redfern, who won 21 England caps in the 1990s, has been appointed for the four-day County Championship fixture between Glamorgan and Derbyshire, which starts on Tuesday.

She became the first woman to officiate at a home England men's match two years ago when she was the fourth official for a T20 international against Sri Lanka.    �AFP
