Washington referee Rebecca Welch first woman appointed to referee men's Championship game

Rebecca Welch is set to make history as the first female referee to be appointed to a Championship fixture.

She is set to take charge of Birmingham vs Preston on Saturday 21 January.

The 39-year-old, from Washington, is no stranger to making history - she was the first female referee to be appointed to a Football League match in April 2021 when she took charge of the League Two clash between Harrogate and Port Vale.
