Wellingborough’s Anne Panter has been selected to represent Great Britain in the Investec London Cup.

The event is being held in Chiswick and gets underway tomorrow as Great Britain take on South Africa in their opening clash. They also take on Germany in their pool.

Panter has already earned her place in the Team GB squad for the Olympics later this summer.

And head coach Danny Kerry said: ““We will use the Investec London Cup to get good quality match practice in a home environment.

“Our pool opponents, South Africa and Germany will be tough and their players will be looking to nail down a place in their respective Olympic squads.

“We will continue to refine our play whilst holding back set-pieces and specific tactics that we will use during the 2012 Games.

“We’re thoroughly looking forward to playing in Chiswick in front of a passionate home crowd.

“If they can bring the support they gave the team at last month’s Test Event to the Investec London Cup it will be fantastic.”
