Rugby: Sue Day makes history as first female president of Wasps FC

July 22, 2013

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.
