The Blue and Golds will see this as another missed opportunity to pull away from the relegation zone. Having fallen 12-0 behind after only
10 minutes, they responded fantastically with 4 well-worked tries to lead 18-12 at the break. The second half proved to be a disappointment as they had to do far too much defending and struggled to create chances in attack.

The Blue and Golds produced their best performance of the season beating Clock Face Miners 18-12 at the Beverley Leisure Center. The victory sees Beverley ARLFC climb off the foot of the table.
Indeed, the first 40 minutes were near flawless as they led 18-0 at the break. They then had enough tenacity and spirit to survive a second-half revival by the Merseyside outfit and claim 2 more valuable league points.
The last home game of the 21/22 season at Beaver Park was against Roundhegians RUFC, both teams equal on points in Yorkshire Division One, and the conditions were good, so there was a promise of an entertaining game of rugby, which the supporters were treated too.
An entertaining game of end-to-end rugby which saw Beverley finish victorious 31 – 21. Matchday sponsors Darren Hart from Groundtech and Iain Gillard from Big Box Group brought a good number of guests to the already excited ‘last match at home’ vibe, rounded off with a positive result meant the atmosphere at Beaver Park was buzzing.
Talented Beverley swimmer heads to the British Championships this week, 5 – 10 April, hoping for Olympic qualifying times. Kieran Grant, age 17, from Beverley Barracudas swimming club has qualified in 4 events and hopes this will open the doors to Paris, in 2024.
The Blue and Golds got their first league points of the season in a tense war of attrition at the Leisure Centre.
The home side dominated possession and territory in the second half with the visitors rarely getting out of their own half. It was a case of Dewsbury Celtic being unable to hang on to a 12-4 lead forever when having to defend so many repeat sets.
Happily, for both these sides, there is no relegation from Yorkshire One this season; otherwise, this might have been a tense relegation dogfight.
In the event it was an enjoyable and entertaining game with plenty of running rugby; carefree, almost, with nothing much at stake. Huddersfield YMCA must have one of the most pleasant playing grounds in the league and with ideal conditions and a fine sunny afternoon, there was every reason to hope for a good game.
The visitors to Beaver park were Pontefract RUFC, flying high in the Yorkshire One table, and needing just one more victory to secure promotion their spirits were raised further upon arrival when they realised it was Ladies Day at Beverley RUFC.
There was no shortage of effort skill and energy in this Beverley performance but it is fair to say that they were out out-muscled by a bulkier pack.
The visitors were again prepared to throw the ball around but it did often result in them turning the ball over early in the tackle count. As a result, Beverley had to defend far too many sets, especially close to their own line which was energy sapping.
Frequent spells of swirling rain and a fierce wind blowing diagonally from corner to corner; it might have been expected that this would be an afternoon of uninspiring rugby for supporters and those attending the ex-players reunion.
But surprisingly both sides made light of the conditions and produced an enthralling game with plenty of running rugby and end to end action.
