Team Scotland’s Greg Lobban hopes to get another chance to win a medal at Birmingham 2022 after falling just short at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Lobban alongside his close friend Alan Clyne lost in the semi-finals of the Men’s Doubles to eventual champions Zac Alexander and David Palmer from Australia.
The pair then lost an extremely tight Bronze Medal match against England’s Declan James and James Willstrop, 11-9, 11-9 in 58 minutes.
It’s the third time Clyne has finished fourth in the Men’s Doubles event at a Commonwealth Games but Lobban hopes to change that in four years time.
After the Bronze Medal match, Lobban said: “It was a disappointing ending which meant we finished fourth here at the Commonwealth Games.
“We came here for gold, we prepared really well but we just didn’t quite get it right when it counted.
“I hope we get the chance again in four years.”
He added: “The Gold Coast has done a good job, the crowd has been really good so Birmingham has a lot to live up to.”
Greg Lobban reached the last 16 of the Singles losing to England’s Daryl Selby.
Alison Thomson and Lisa Aitken narrowly missed out on a spot in the quarter-finals of the Women’s Doubles losing a brilliant ‘winner takes all’ Pool B clash against England’s Laura Massaro and Sarah-Jane Perry who won silver in the singles.
Aitken reached the last 16 of the Mixed Doubles alongside Moran whilst Games debutant Thomson, 21, was knocked out of the Women’s Singles in Round One by 12th seed Sivasangari Subramaniam.
Team Scotland finished Gold Coast 2018 with a total of 44 medals, including nine gold – the nation’s second highest tally in Commonwealth Games history.
