The Blue and Golds will take to the field this weekend as they welcome Thatto Heath to the Beverley Leisure Centre.
Beverley’s manager Tony Spence should not have too many selection worries for the BARLA National Cup Quarter tie.

Weather permitting, they will again travel to Mayport, Cumberland to take on Glasson Rangers. The game is due to kick-off at 2pm.
The Blue and Golds snatched the spoils with a Sam Coleman try just 15 minutes from the end of this quality pre-season friendly, played at a breakneck pace with both sides making light of the blustery conditions.
In this game with unlimited substitutions, Tony Spence gave workouts to 21 players and will take many positives especially the standard of defending close to the line.
The Blue and Golds will finally dust off the Winter cobwebs this Saturday, against Myton Warriors at the Beverley Leisure Centre.

The Blue and Golds will draw down the curtain on their 2019 season with a trip to Dewsbury (2.30pm kick-off) this Saturday.
They face an already relegated Shaw Cross Sharks and are going there looking to end the season on a high note.
This was in many ways a pleasing performance in comparison to the previous 2 weeks but at the same time disappointing one.
The Blue and Golds had enough possession and territory in the first half to put themselves in a winning position.
The blue and golds will rue not converting pressure into points in this clash. There seemed little to choose between the two sides in terms of ability, except the visitors took advantage of every error that the home side made.
All 4 of St Jude’s tries were the result of an error. This combined with scrambling well in defence proved to be the deciding factors in the game.
The blue and golds will take on Hull Dockers this Saturday in their only derby fixture this season. Beverley will face Hull Dockers at 2.30pm kick-off at the Leisure Centre.

This was a much changed Blue and Golds line-up that travelled to Bradford and there were few complaints from the coaching staff about the efforts.
Tony Spence took control of the side for the match that saw Beverley 33-18 by the West Yorkshire side. Spence said tactical awareness was an issue while he did praise his player’s efforts.
