Michaela Tabb will take charge of her second Betfred.com World Championship final next month.

Tabb became the first female referee in a Crucible final when she was handed the responsibility in 2009, and has had to wait for another opportunity.

Her appointment for this year's title match was confirmed by World Snooker on Monday.

The 44-year-old Scot is relishing the May 6-7 match in Sheffield, saying: "I was absolutely elated when I found out I was doing it again this year.

"I loved it when I did the final in 2009. It went really well for me without any mistakes so I just hope it will be the same this time."
