Beverley Beaten By Crossleyans RUFC At Beaver Park

Beverley Beaten By Crossleyans RUFC At Beaver Park
March 16, 2020

A busy day at Beaver park – the first team game was pre-empted with an excellent win for Beverley Under 14’s in the semi-final of the Yorkshire cup against Otley. Good luck in the final, also at Beaver Park in a couple of week’s time.

The annual Old Boys reunion was already in full throw by the kick off time. It was great to see the crowd boosted by many old friends of bygone ages.

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.

Disappointing Performance From Beavers Sees Them Beaten By Goole

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.

November 18, 2019

Somewhat miraculously, Old Crossleyans were able to host this fixture despite the torrents of rain that have beset our county over the previous week.

Beverley kicked off the first half playing from right to left and slightly uphill on a pitch in remarkably good condition.

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 Beat Old Rishworthians To Go Second In Table

Beverley Beat Old Rishworthians To Go Second In Table
September 24, 2018

In the end a comfortable win which took Beverley RUFC up to second place in Yorkshire One. After twenty minutes this match looked like being a whitewash.

Beverley were then already twenty four points up with a four try bonus point in the bag. But by the time the game went into its last quarter it had all changed and Beverley, while not exactly hanging on, were certainly having their work cut out to finish with the win.

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)

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.

October 1, 2017

This was more like it. Not a great performance by any means but vastly improved from the dismal showing of the previous week and in the end a comfortable bonus point win.

In truth as a spectacle this was a pretty drab affair with not much running rugby and a relentless stream of penalties being awarded throughout.

Beavers Lose By One Point On Opening Day Of Season At York

Beavers Lose By One Point On Opening Day Of Season At York
September 3, 2017

Conditions were perfect for this season’s opener between York and Beverley at Clifton Park and what a cracking match this turned out to be.

York opened the scoring after 5 minutes with a penalty from in front of the Beverley posts but a Phil Duboulay penalty levelled for Beverley after 13 minutes to make it 3-3.

Rampant Beverley Wrap Their Season Up In Style Against Acklam

Rampant Beverley Wrap Their Season Up In Style Against Acklam
April 24, 2017

Beverley rounded off the season in rampant mood as they demolished a very determined Acklam side by 67 points to 10.

From the kick-off Beverley put pressure on the Acklam line but were unable to break through. This was largely due to the number of infringements by the Acklam forwards which resulted in four penalties and a yellow card for them within the first 5 minutes.

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.

Beavers Beat Ribblesdale To Make It Six Wins On The Spin

Beavers Beat Ribblesdale To Make Six Wins On The Spin
February 5, 2017

A bit of a curate’s egg here. There were flashes of scintillating rugby, mainly from Beverley, but for the most part this game never rose above the mundane.

Beverley deservedly won in the end but they made heavy weather of it. They were the better side but they were never quite at their best, probably through being without several of their key players.

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.
