European Para Badminton Championships 2014

Ireland’s two-times World and European Para Badminton champion Niall McVeigh remained upbeat after his shock defeat at the hands of Andrew Martin the English No1 who for once got the better of the Poyntzpass 24 year old in the final of the European Para Badminton Championships in Spain. Despite being “a little bit disappointed” Niall admitted to having “learned a lot from today’s match and it will make me a better player.”
