Former England Women’s international Sue Day has been elected the first female president in Wasps FC’s 146-year history.

Her election was confirmed at the club’s annual meeting and she will serve as Wasps’ most senior officer for an initial three-year period.

“It’s a huge honour and the ultimate accolade for someone who has been involved in the club for such a long time,” she said.

Sue played for Wasps from 1996 to 2010 during which time she won 59 England caps as a utility back and also appeared in World Cups in the 15-a-side and sevens formats of the game.

She has served Wasps, who are now based in Acton, in a number of other capacities as well including coach, chair of playing and sponsorship secretary.
