Clark and Kellogg edged out in French final
The England pair, who defeated double world champions and Olympic silver medallists Nova Widianto and Liliyana Natsir in the semi-final yesterday, went down to second seeds He Hanbin and Yu Yang.
Fourth seeds Clark and Kellogg, who were bidding to avenge their Olympic defeat by the Chinese pair, were beaten 21-13 21-19 in 42 minutes.
They will now return home to prepare for Thursday's international clash with Poland at Swindon's Oasis Leisure Centre.
But the world No 9s will have boosted their chances of making the top eight pairs who will qualify for the Super Series Masters final in December with just the China and Hong Kong events left in this year's Super Series circuit.
