Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback

Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback
March 7, 2020

What an extraordinary match. The final score made it look close but it seldom was. After twenty-five minutes Beverley was cruising at 19 – 0 up and playing some fluent attacking rugby.

Fifty minutes later they were 40-26 down having been given a thorough going-over by a resurgent home side. A strong comeback in the last five minutes then brought them back up to within two points to earn them a bonus point.

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.

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.

Beaver Are Worthy Winners Beating Dinnington At Beaver Park

Beaver Are Worthy Winners Beating Dinnington At Beaver Park
November 11, 2019

Beverley knew the visit of Dinnington RUFC to Beaver Park was going to be a tough one after last season’s encounter when they stifled the Beverley game plan so effectively it was reminiscent of what South Africa did to England last weekend. 

This occasion had a much better outcome for the Beavers, playing at home in the cold sunshine on a squelchy pitch, an entertaining 9 try game saw Beverley finish worthy winners 36-22.

Heath Claim Deserved Win Over Beverley At Beaver Park

Heath Claim Deserved Win Over Bevelrey At Beaver Park
October 20, 2019

Beverley knew the visit of Heath to Beaver Park was going to be a tough one. It always is, and more recently the men from Halifax have had the edge, utilising their strength to better advantage than Beverley’s.

Heath’s strength being a forward pack that is probably the strongest and best drilled in the league, Beverley’s strength is their fast and creative backs that can score tries from anywhere.

Beverley Remain Second After Beating Local Rival Hullensians

Beverley Remain Second After Beating Local Rival Hullensians
October 13, 2019

In recent seasons Beverley at Hullensians have performed wretchedly, suffered defeat, and seen their season start to fall away.

This time though they never looked remotely like the side that had racked up over two hundred points in their last four games they at least they came away with the five-point win they wanted.

Beverley RUFC End Season With Victory Over Old Broadleians

Beverley RUFC End Season With Victory Over Old Broadleians
April 13, 2019

Beverley RUFC entertained Old Brodleians in the last match of the season at Beaver Park in this Yorkshire League Division 1 game and what a cracking match it turned out to be.

Brodlieans kicked off towards the clubhouse and as Beverley mounted an attack up the right flank an interception from a sloppy pass in the Beverley backs led to a try to Brods in the third minute (0-5). Play then settled down with each side sharing possession in the midfield.

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.

Beverley Come Out On Top As They Beat Heath In A Thriller

Beverley Come Out On Top As They Beat Heath In A Thriller
February 11, 2019

What a match. This was what proper rugby at its best is all about. Two sides at the top of their game going hell for leather for eighty minutes – and with never a hint of ill-temper from start to finish. The result could have gone either way.

After a 66 point feast of scoring only two points separated the sides at the end and neither could have complained at the outcome whichever way it went. Beforehand there was an air of expectancy. Beverley arrived here on the back of four consecutive bonus-point wins and Heath’s recent record was not much inferior.

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.

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score
November 18, 2018

A good natured crowd, a fast game, and a tight finish; this was a good day’s rugby. After three defeats in their last four league outings Beverley badly needed a win here.

Not to get one was a disappointment and they now find themselves languishing in mid-table. It wasn’t for the want of trying and there was plenty of enterprise but in the end they could have no complaint at the final result.
