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.[1]

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.[2]

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.

On 24 February 2014, Redfern joined Leicestershire on a two-year contract,[3] but it was not renewed, and he was released from the club in late 2015.

In December 2015, Redfern signed for Shropshire - as well as returning to play in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League with Leycett.[4]
