Daniel James Redfern (born 18 April 1990 in Shrewsbury, Shropshire) is an English cricketer. He is one of the youngest players ever to play List A limited overs cricket. He made his debut for Derbyshire Phantoms in a NatWest Pro40 League match against Worcestershire Royals at New Road, Worcester on 3 September 2006, aged 16 years and 138 days. He is a left-handed batsman and an off-spin bowler and has played 11 times for England Under-19s. He attended Adams' Grammar School, in Newport, Shropshire.
A product of Derbyshire's Academy, he signed his first professional contract in July 2008, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2010 season.
Following this, he scored his maiden One Day half-century in a tied Pro40 match against Yorkshire, hitting 57 not out but as Derbyshire narrowly missed out on a win. In August, he made his first Championship start of the year, in a high-scoring draw against Warwickshire, where he scored 11 runs and took one for seven in Warwickshire's second innings.
On 5 April 2012, Redfern hit his maiden first-class century in a 160 partnership for the sixth wicket. After being put in at 50/4, Redfern hit 110 in 143 balls, spending the best part of three hours at the crease.
In October, Redfern signed a three-year contract with Derbyshire after helping them to achieve promotion. He averaged 37.71 in first-class in 2012.
In December 2015, Redfern signed for Shropshire - as well as returning to play in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League with Leycett.
