Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory

Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory
March 12, 2019

Beware the ides of March.  But not this week.  After the dismal affair a week ago at Dinnington Beverley were back on top form securing another outstanding bonus point win – the seventh in their last eight games. 

Crossleyans started the match only one point behind Beverley but never really got a look-in and Beverley comfortably cruised home scoring six tries in the process all of which Phil Duboulay converted in difficult conditions.

Beverley Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians

Beverley Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians
January 13, 2019

New year, new Beverley. After a disappointing late autumn in which they rather lost their way Beverley in 2019 look to have recaptured the early season spark that had them riding high in Yorkshire One.

Following their impressive win the previous week against Pontefract this was another first-class display and another well earned victory. Moreover, for most of the game, they did it with fourteen men after Alfie Hart-Fisher had been red-carded early on for dangerous play. They owed a lot to their pack which even down to seven men still ended the game looking the stronger of the two sets of forwards.

Beverley Get Second Half Of Their Season With Victory Over Pontefract

Beverley Get Second Half Of Their Season With Victory Over Pontefract
January 7, 2019

Beverley RUFC started the second half of the season entertaining Pontefract on a cold and grey day, but at least dry conditions underfoot made the prospect of some good rugby realistic and so it proved.

In September the Beavers secured a victory over Pontefract in the corresponding fixture over in the West Riding. Results since then shown that Ponte has improved substantially and they currently sit fourth in the table, with 13 points more than Beverley.

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score
November 18, 2018

A good natured crowd, a fast game, and a tight finish; this was a good day’s rugby. After three defeats in their last four league outings Beverley badly needed a win here.

Not to get one was a disappointment and they now find themselves languishing in mid-table. It wasn’t for the want of trying and there was plenty of enterprise but in the end they could have no complaint at the final result.

Beavers Exit Yorkshire Shield After High Scoring Encounter

Beavers Exit Yorkshire Shield After High Scoring Encounter
November 12, 2018

A close run thing but Beverley eventually went out of the Yorkshire Shield. It was a high scoring and absorbing game throughout and in the end, there were only two points in it.

Perhaps the relevant factor was that while Beverley’s scores all came from their own exertions every Moortown point resulted directly from a Beverley error. Beverley should have won this match comfortably but simply gave it away through their own profligacy.

Beverley See Off Spirited Guisborough Side To Claim The Spoils
September 30, 2018

In perfect playing conditions both sides contributed to an enjoyable game in the crisp autumn sunshine providing plenty of entertaining running rugby.

Beverley RUFC were clearly the classier of the two teams and they turned it on in the second half with some exhilarating play to bring them a comfortable victory.

Disappointing Result For Beverley Who Are Beaten By Middlesbrough

Disappointing Result For Beverley Who Are Beaten By Middlesbrough
February 25, 2018

Not much joy here for Beverley. Over the years they have seldom had much success at Acklam Park and today was no exception. A catalogue of errors, missed tackles, and conceded penalties, left them trailing 22-5 at halftime. It was not a great first half. They were left with a big hill to climb and in the end it proved just unattainable despite a splendid second half effort which got them to within striking distance of taking the lead.

The first quarter of an hour seemed to be little more than a relentless stream of penalties awarded against Beverley in their own 22. For some time it looked ominously likely that we were in for a second successive dismal week of incessant whistle blowing.

Beverley Win Again As They Beat Selby At Beaver Park

Beverley Win Again As They Beat Selby At Beaver Park
February 5, 2018

Beverley hosted a resurgent Selby at Beaver Park on a miserable wet and grey day when conditions were bound to be difficult to allow much entertaining rugby and, so it proved.

The match was held as a Memorial game to celebrate the life of Lee Morley, a good friend of the club who, sadly passed away last year. Proceedings from the match and lunch raised over £3000 to be donated to Ward 29 at Castle Hill hospital at the request of Lee’s family in thanks for the care given to Lee during his extended time there.

Beverley RUFC Enjoy Good Home Win Against Keighley At Beaver Park

Beverley RUFC Enjoy Good Home Win Against Keighley At Beaver Park
October 8, 2017

Beverley RUFC kicked off on a wet and blustery afternoon at Beaver Park to start this Yorkshire Division 1 fixture, and immediately mounted an assault on the Keighley line.

But, largely due to determined defence by Keighley, were unable to capitalise on their possession of the ball in the early exchanges. In fact during this early period Keighley were unable to hang on to the ball for long enough to get out of their own half.

Beverley Romp Home Against Salem In West Yorkshire

Beverley Romp Home Against Salem In West Yorkshire
December 12, 2016

A cracking game between two well-matched sides and a cracking Beverley RUFC performance.

Salem are a different proposition from the team that struggled earlier in the season and the young Beverley side would have expected a tough afternoon here. That they romped home in such fine style owed much to a composed team effort and a fearless attacking game.
