Gold Coast was Alan’s third appearance at a Commonwealth Games previously finishing 4th in Men’s Doubles at both the Delhi 2010 and Glasgow 2014 Games. On the hunt for that elusive medal, he paired up with Greg Lobban, whom he had partnered to gold at the 2016 World Doubles Championships. The pair came up agonisingly short in the bronze medal match, giving Alan his third 4th place finish in as many Games. Alan also contested the Men’s Singles where he reached the quarter-finals.

Alan claimed his seventh Scottish national title in March 2017 and has risen to a career high of 24th in the World Singles rankings, whilst competing extensively in the World Series. World Doubles gold in 2016 in his first major tournament with Greg Lobban was part of a prolific summer in which both players were part of the first Scottish team for 17 years to take a European Team Championship medal. The pair went on to take silver at the 2017 World Doubles Championships.
