Stockport Vs Beverley RUFC

March 21, 2010

Beverley paid the price for one dreadful lapse in defence to go down to a narrow defeat at league leaders Stockport.  The wet conditions meant the game was fairly error-strewn and often scrappy, but it was exciting and enjoyable for all that.  It was played throughout in a good spirit for which great credit is due to the refereeing of Simon Lazenby who kept it flowing with the minimum of…


Rossendale Vs Beverley RUFC

March 16, 2010

Over zealous brandishing of yellow cards spoilt what would have been a cracking game at Rossendale.  Ironically it was a match played throughout in a good spirit with both sides intent on fast open rugby.  Almost certainly it would have been a tight contest between two sides which before the rash of the yellow carding looked to be evenly matched and both up for the win. Beverley RUFC took the…


Pearce Expects a Tough Challenge at Cleckheaton

February 26, 2010

After a disappointing home defeat by Penrith last Saturday, courtesy of a dubious last minute penalty, Beverley RUFC travel to Cleckheaton this weekend to take on the West Riding outfit in the National League 3(North) fixture. Although languishing in the bottom three in the table  for most of the season, Cleckheaton looked one of the better sides when the visited Beaver Park last September and coach Barrie Pearce is expecting…


Thriller Sees Beverley Lose With Last Kick of the Game

February 22, 2010

This was a real thriller with the result in doubt until the very end.  Fixtures between these two sides invariably produce fast enjoyable encounters and this was no exception.  Their two games this season have yielded a total of 88 points with only a margin of two points difference between the sides.  Today it was once again a nail-biting affair in which Penrith snatched victory with a penalty at the…


Beverley RUFC Vs Chester RFC Match Report

February 10, 2010

A thrilling game with the result in doubt until the dying minutes.  With two evenly matched sides, lying third and fifth in the table, it was always going to be a tight encounter. On the day Beverley RUFC took their chances better and just about deserved the win.  In the gloomy light and on a heavy pitch this might have been expected to be a forward slog in the mud. …


Hancock & Gardiner Missing for Chester Visit

February 4, 2010

Chester RFC are the visitors to Beaver Park this weekend for the twice rearranged game  in National League 3 (North). Beverley RUFC lost the corresponding game at Chester early in the season although they felt hard done by that day losing both Junior Tupai to a broken wrist and Goran Jelencic to concussion, very early in the game. Thankfully both have recovered well and have been influential in the Beavers’recent…

Beverley Ready for the Visit of Middlesbrough

January 28, 2010

Beverley RUFC entertain Middlesbrough RUFC at Beaver Park this Saturday in the National League 3 fixture (kick-off 2.15 p.m. In the corresponding fixture at Middlesbrough last October the Beavers lost narrowly 19-12 but felt very hard done by since they had the best of the game and but for a very questionable decision by an otherwise excellent referee, they would have won. They will clearly be out for revenge this…


Sheffield Tigers Vs Beverley RUFC

January 25, 2010

Looking anything but a side that had not played for six weeks Beverley RUFC cruised to a comfortable victory over a disappointing Sheffield Tigers to maintain their position in the upper half of League Three North.  Sheffield were a pale shadow of the side that had played so impressively earlier in the season at Beaver Park and for much of the game Beverley RUFC needed merely to sit back and…


Birkenhead Park Vs Beverley RUFC

December 15, 2009

Beverley RUFC’s unbeaten run ended in disappointing fashion with a lacklustre defeat loosing 19 – 10 at Birkenhead Park who now move above them in the table.  This was just one of those days for Beverley RUFC whose game was error-strewn from start to finish.  After their recent good form they were probably due for an off-day and this was certainly it. They were under pressure from the start as…


West Hartlepool Vs Beverley RUFC

December 6, 2009

West Hartlepool  5    Beverley RUFC  39 Beverley RUFC ended the first half of the league season in fine style with a comprehensive victory over bottom placed West Hartlepool.  This fixture in the past has often proved to be something of a banana skin for Beverley RUFC.  Not this time. They played some scintillating rugby and romped home to move up to sixth in the table.  Some of their rugby here…

Beverley RUFC Vs Rossendale

November 22, 2009

Some fine enterprising rugby by Beverley RUFC brought them a comfortable victory and lifted them above their opponents in the table.  Overall the game was by no means a classic but some of Beverley RUFC’s play was as good as we have seen all season Beating Rossendale 37 – 10.  Not since the opening matches have they moved the ball so crisply and menacingly as they did here and Rossendale…


Beverley RUFC Vs Rochdale RFC

Penrith Vs Beverley RUFC

November 2, 2009

Penrith and Beverley RUFC battled out a 19 – 19 draw on Saturday in a thrilling match and a grandstand finish.  Beverley looked to have won it with a try in the dying seconds but the conversion from in front of the posts went agonisingly wide leaving the game ending in a draw.  Taking the afternoon as a whole it was probably a fair result.  Both teams had contributed to…


Middlesbrough Vs Beverley RUFC

October 19, 2009

This was more like it.  Although they went down narrowly to high flying Middlesbrough Beverley RUFC were almost back to their best and were desperately unlucky not to win this match.  Not many teams get any change out of a visit to Acklam Park but Beverley RUFC played enough good rugby here to have won this game comfortably.  The home side were seldom in the Beverley RUFC 22 whereas Beverley…


Darlington Mowden Park Vs Beverley RUFC

October 5, 2009

Darlington Mowden Park  36   Beverley 21 – After a disastrous first twenty minutes which left them trailing 21-5 Beverley steadily clawed their way back to 21-all only to succumb to two late tries and go down to a convincing defeat.  It was a strange game.  There was plenty of good rugby on view but for Beverley also plenty of frustration.  Time and again when they should have kept the ball…

Beverley head to the North East on Saturday for the first of several trips to the area this season, for the National League 3 fixture against Darlington Mowden Park. Park have been a force in Northern rugby for a number of years but have slipped of late and were relegated last season from the old National league. Nonetheless they seem to have strengthened their squad somewhat for this season and…
