The council’s Sport, Play and Arts Service, in partnership with the local England Netball Development Officer Pauline Hardy, recently celebrated the third anniversary of Walking Netball starting in the East Riding of Yorkshire with a tournament at East Riding Leisure Beverley.
Teams which are based in the East Riding leisure centres of Beverley, Haltemprice, Withernsea, Driffield and Bridlington attended the competition.
On a glorious sunny day with the pitch at Beaver Park looking in excellent condition, a good crowd were anticipating some good running rugby in the game between Champions York and a Beverley side seeking revenge for the single point defeat that they suffered at York on the opening day of the season last September. They were no to be disappointed!
York kicked off deep into the Beverley 22 and remained there until, after 2 minutes they were awarded a penalty. From the resulting line out, a sharp move resulted in a try under the posts which was converted to give York an early lead (0-7)
Beverley ARLC chalked up their sixth consecutive win as they beat Eastmoor Dragons 45-30 at the Beverley Leisure Centre to remain top of NCL division 3
Beverley now face a top of the table clash next weekend against Clock Face Miners who boast a similar 100% record. As has been the pattern in recent weeks, the blue and golds attacking machine has attempted to blow the opposition away very early on.
Cllr Denis Healy is supporting the family of the late Ivan Usher in their quest to realise his dream of building a memorial stand at Beverley Town Football Club.
Ivan, who was a well known figure in Beverley, passed away last autumn at the age of 83. He worked for 30 years as a PE teacher, and spent the whole of his professional life at one school; Longcroft, where he taught generations of children to enjoy and appreciate their fitness.
The second round of the 2018 British Superbike Championship was held around the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.
Beverley’s James ‘Westy’ Westmoreland competed on board the Gearlink Kawasaki in the Dickies British Supersport Championship, placing the Kawasaki fourteenth on the grid for the first of the weekend’s two races in a time of 47.2secs.
