Pontefract Beat Beverley In Forgettable Encounter

Pontefract Beat Beverley In Forgettable Encounter
January 13, 2020

Not much to write home about here. This was pretty dire stuff. Beverley will want to forget it as quickly as possible, and so will most of the spectators.

Pontefract were the better of the two sides and fully deserved their win but neither team or the game generally, ever really got going.

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win
January 6, 2020

Beverley RUFC has been doing things the tough way this season, having had 4 narrow defeats and regular absenteeism through injury and unavailability, they still found themselves sitting third in the league with a fighting chance of regaining one of the top two spots.

An away trip to Leodiensian RUFC in Leeds, who are the only team to have beaten the previously undefeated top of the table Old Brodleians, was definitely an opportunity to succumb to a fifth defeat, given again there were many absentees from the starting line-up.

Who Should You Bet on in Britain’s Next Generation of Tennis players?

Who Should You Bet on in Britain's Next Generation of Tennis players?
January 3, 2020

The absence of Andy Murray from the Australian Open will once again leave British hopes of winning a tennis tournament in doubt, to say the least.

Kyle Edmund has shown promise in the past in the men’s draw, reaching the semi-finals of the competition in 2018. However, Edmund’s form has declined over the last two years, and it would be a surprise to see him make an appearance in the second week of the competition; with current odds of 150/1 to succeed in the Australian Open.

Beavers Conclude 2019 With Gutsy Home Win Over Selby
December 15, 2019

A game between third and fourth prior to the fixture was always going to be a tight affair and so it proved on a filthy day at Beaver Park.

Selby kicked off towards the clubhouse and straight away Beverley were able to sustain possession through a series of phases and pin back Selby back with some clever kicking by Phil Duboulay. With the lineout and scrum functioning better than in recent weeks the Beavers were able to establish some control.

Disappointing Performance From Beavers Sees Them Beaten By Goole
December 8, 2019

A dry day with high cloud and a gentle breeze and a pitch in very good condition given the recent wet weather, bode well for the game between these old rivals, who last competed in a league fixture in 2005.

There is no commentary around the first 5 minutes of the game as the referee blew his whistle for the game to start “a few minutes” early. Unfortunately, the news did not filter to the spectators in the bar.

Beavers Youngsters Show Great Heart At Ionians

November 15, 2019

After a week of torrential rain, Hull Ionians were able to put on their festival albeit having to use all the space they had to ensure that matches could take place, closing off the lowest-lying pitches at the far end of the ground due to standing water.

Beverley U11’s turned up with a full-strength squad of 11 for the 9-a-side matches. After the changes to the layout due to the waterlogging, pitches were made smaller and teams played 7-a-side matches which impacted on the way the games played out.
