Archer secures Commonwealth place
Simon Archer
Simon Archer was Britain's first Olympic badminton medallist
Doubles specialist Simon Archer has been named in England's 10-strong squad for the Commonwealth Games in March.

The 32-year-old, who won mixed doubles gold at the last two Games in 1998 and 2002, is planning to retire this year because of a persistent knee injury.

"I had set my heart on Melbourne. It's the perfect way to start bringing the curtain down on my career," he said.

But Archer's men's doubles partner David Lindley and mixed doubles expert Natalie Munt have not been selected.

English national singles champion Elizabeth Cann misses out on the England squad, but will represent Jersey at the Games.


England's Commonwealth Games team:
Men: Simon Archer, Robert Blair, Anthony Clark, Aamir Ghaffar, Nathan Robertson.

Women: Gail Emms, Tracey Hallam, Donna Kellogg, Joanne Nicholas, Ella Tripp.
