Serie A's first woman ref makes debut

Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi to officiate Sassuolo-Salernitana

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 28 - Serie A's first woman referee, Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi, will make her top-flight debut on Sunday, referees' association AIA said Wednesday.
    The 32-year-old Livorno-born sociology graduate will take charge of Sassuolo-Salernitana, on the eighth day of play in Serie A.
    Ferrieri Caputi has already officiated at a Serie B match and last December became the first woman to ref an Italian Cup tie featuring a Serie A side, Cagliari.
    On the latter occasion she disallowed three goals. (ANSA).
