England Golf will send two teams to defend the Vilmorin Cup at the French Lady Junior Championship at St Cloud, near Paris, from 28 March-1 April.
Team A will include Curtis Cup player Bronte Law, (Image © Leaderboard Photography) who was the runner-up in the individual championship last year. She will be joined by fellow internationals Gabriella Cowley and Alex Peters, the English women's stroke play champion.

Team B consists of England international Amber Ratcliffe, with girl international Olivia Winning and fellow member of the England Performance U18 squad, Annabel Dimmock.

The Vilmorin Cup is the nations' team trophy and is played over the two stroke play rounds of the championship, which decide the players to go forward to the matchplay knockouts. The championship is contested by the cream of Europe's U21 amateurs.

Alex Peters, 19, (Notts Ladies') is the English women's stroke play champion and, like Gabriella and Bronte, was in England's successful team at the women's Home Internationals. Last season she also won the Independent Schools' championship, the Nottinghamshire ladies' title and shared the Porters Park Centenary Cup. She represented England in the South American amateur early this year.
