Antony Fanshawe To Chair The HPA International Committee
The HPA has this morning announced that Antony Fanshawe has accepted the invitation to chair The International Committee which will be responsible for selecting teams to represent England here or overseas.
The HPA commented, “Fanshawe reached 5 goals and made a significant contribution to the England team in FIP championship tournaments, as a player for those held in Spain, Switzerland and France and then more recently as a coach in Argentina and Chile.
Joining him on the Selection Committee will be Tom Morley, Satnam Dhillon, Adrian Wade, Malcolm Borwick and Nacho Gonzalez whom we would like to thank for taking on this often very difficult task, and to thank also the outgoing Chairman, Richard Britten-Long and all his committee members for their work and support during these past years.
“Nick Wiles, Chairman of the HPA, was instrumental in Antony’s appointment and commented: ‘I am delighted Antony has agreed to chair the selection committee. As the Polo Manager of Guards Polo Club, he is well placed to watch regularly our best players at all levels of the game. Under Antony’s leadership this committee has a wealth of experience and understanding of what it takes to compete successfully at the highest levels of our sport. It is great for English polo that this group are willing to take on this important responsibility.’
Fanshawe will take responsibility of the committee immediately.
