Beverley Beat Middlesbrough In An Absorbing Encounter

Beverley Beat Middlesbrough In An Absorbing Encounter
March 30, 2019

With several of their most influential players absent, this looked like being a tough afternoon for Beverley.  Not a bit of it.  This was an altogether absorbing match and a fine performance by the young Beverley side. 

In recognition of the Club’s annual Ladies Day, they turned out in pink shirts and flowery shorts but mercifully did not play accordingly.  Far from being a drab end of season affair, this was a cracking game with some top quality play by both sides.

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.

Guisborough kicked off in this Yorkshire League 1 match and had 5 points on the board before Beverley had touched the ball with a smartly taken try from Joe Whyman (0-5).

A stunned Beverley hit back and mounted a series of attacks, resulting eventually in a penalty which Phil Duboulay kicked to make it 3-5.

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.

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.

Outstanding Beverley Beat Champions York At Beaver Park

Outstanding Beverley Beat Champions York At Beaver Park
April 22, 2018

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)

High Flying Beverley Beat Heath For Third Time This Season

High Flying Beverley Beat Heath For Third Time This Seaso
March 11, 2018

Beverley came out on top against Heath for the third time this season in a bruising encounter at North Dean, Halifax, to maintain their second position in the league and put a dent in Heath’s promotion ambitions.

The dreadful weather conditions prevailing did not suggest the prospect of much flowing rugby and so it turned out with the result that we saw a dour contest largely played out between the two forward packs.

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.

Beavers 'Unlucky To Lose' Away At Old Brodleians
November 6, 2017

An excellent game this between two evenly matched sides played in a good spirit by both sides.

Beverley RUFC , playing down the considerable slope and with the wind behind, immediately took advantage and mounted siege on the Brod’s line. After three minutes No 8 Isaac Keighley crashed over for a try which skipper Phil Duboulay duly converted to make the score 0-7.

Beavers Workmanlike Display Secures Win Against Bradford

Beavers Workmanlike Display Secures Win Against Bradford
October 30, 2017

Bradford Salem started this match in a manner which belied their lowly league position and Beverley were put under extreme pressure for the opening 10 minutes.

Bradford’s forwards were swarming all over them, albeit usually from suspiciously looking offside positions, and they were unable to escape from their own 22 and hold onto the ball for long.

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 Go Down To Hullensians’ At Beaver Park

Beverley Go Down To Hullensians' At Beaver Park
September 24, 2017

Pray let it be a long time before we endure another afternoon like this. This was a truly awful game.

There was plenty of huffing and puffing and it was all played in a good spirit but the quality hardly ever rose above the mediocre. What little constructive rugby there was came from Hullensians who fully deserved their comfortable victory.

Heroic Defending By Beverley Secures Massive Win Over York

Heroic Defending By Beverley Secures Massive Win Over York
March 13, 2017

This was a great performance by a Beverley side heavily outweighed by their much bigger opponents who badly needed a win to maintain their challenge to make the playoff for promotion to North 1.

Phil Duboulay opened the scoring for the Beavers with a penalty after 10 minutes and after 17 minutes Beverley went further ahead with a smart try from Luke Hazell which Phil Duboulay duly converted to make it 10-0 to the home side.

Beverley Withstand Late Scarborough Pressure To Win At Beaver Park

Beverley Withstand Late Scarborough Pressure To Win At Beaver Park
February 19, 2017

A helter-skelter of a match. Beverley deservedly won in the end but they had to withstand a terrific late Scarborough onslaught during which the two sides between them scored 31 points in the last 25 minutes.

Beverley led 25-6 going into the final quarter and looked to have the game comfortably in the bag. They had been the better side throughout and were playing by far the more controlled rugby. They could scarcely have anticipated the rumbustious ending to come.

Heath End Beavers Winning Streak In West Yorkshire

Heath End Beavers Winning Streak In West Yorkshire
February 13, 2017

A damp murky West Yorkshire afternoon and not one that Beverley will particularly want to remember.

In the heavy underfoot conditions they could never quite come to terms with the big Heath pack and in the end could have no complaint at the final outcome. They did have their moments particularly in the first half and on a firmer surface it could all have been very different.
