Beverley ARLC have been in full training for the past month. The first game of the season at York Acorn in the first round of the Challenge Cup on the weekend of the 26 and 27 January is drawing closer.
The club also expects to confirm a couple of friendlies in the month of February.
Pat Howdle has stepped down as Director of Rugby at Beverley ARLC bringing the end to a four-year spell with the club.
News of his departure was issued by the club who expressed their most sincere thanks. Howdle took charge at the club in the summer of 2014. During that time the club has developed rapidly and has even played live on TV.
Another trophy came Beverley Town Cricket Club’s way last Saturday when the 2nd XI won York Senior League Division One.
Although the weather prevented any play in two of the club’s Saturday games and the most vital, the 2nd XI fixture, was also abandoned before completion, news of cancellations and abandonments throughout the league meant the 2nds kept top place in Division one and will be promoted to the York Senior League Premier Division.
A busy Bank Holiday weekend for Beverley Town Cricket Club saw the 1st XI take 57 points from a possible 60 giving themselves a real chance of promotion.
The 2nd XI lost one game and picked up 27 points from their second to slip out of and back in to the promotion places; the 3rds won and then lost in two very tight finishes; and the 4ths rounded off their unbeaten season off in in style with a comfortable win.
