Andy Pringle came tantalisingly close to a fourth successive National Veterans Doubles at Marlborough. He and partner Hamish Buchanan only lost in the final, going down 11-15, 10-15.
So, it was Andy’s second silver medal this year, following his runner-up spot at the UK Open Wallball in February.
At least there was an Executioners’ connection in the Veterans doubles: the title went to Dave Fox, one of the club’s founders. And he was partnered by John Minta, who has won the title twice with Andy in the past.
