Beverley ARLC Exit Cup at First Hurdle

October 24, 2010

Blue & Golds Show Heart in Tough Match at Leeds

October 11, 2010

As the scoreline suggests this game was mission impossible. The blue and golds travelled to Leeds last Saturday against a side which would certainly not be out of place in the Premier Division of the National Conference if they possessed the facilities to be there. They were physically bigger and oused class and ability from one to thirteen boasting a number of ex professionals in their ranks. There was no…
