Beverley Battle Hard To Win At Beaver park

October 23, 2011

Not much quality rugby here but Beverley RUFC came out of it with the win they badly needed and a bonus point to go with it. For much of the game Beverley were outplayed and could hardly get their hands on the ball.  At 20-7 down early in the second half and penned in their own half they looked to be heading towards another defeat. But the game was completely…


Injury Hit Beavers Travel To Birkenhead

October 13, 2011

Beverley RUFC face the long trip across the Pennines on Saturday, to take on Birkenhead Park in the National League Div 3(North) Fixture. During last Saturday’s heavy defeat at the hands of Bradford & Bingley, the Beavers suffered another blow with hard working prop forward Mike Bradshaw joining the queue in the Physio’s room with a shoulder injury. However, there is a little light at the end of the tunnel…


Injury Crisis: Beavers Travel To Chester With Ten Players Missing

September 30, 2011

Beverley RUFC’s season of woe continues as they face up to the most unbelievable injury crisis in memory. Last Saturday’s defeat by Lymm, not only cost them the points but also resulted in serious injuries to lock Matty Adams, flanker David Worrall and outside back Goran Jelencic. Other injuries incurred, although apparently less serious were to stand-off Phil Duboulay, scrum half Chris Infield and winger Rob Smith. Add to these…


Worrall Set To Return For Beavers Trip To Morley

September 15, 2011

Beverley RUFC travel to West Yorkshire on Saturday to take on Morley in the National League 3(North) encounter in good spirits after their impressive win over Penrith last weekend. Beset by early season injuries and non availabilities, the Beavers fielded a young looking side made up of a number of players making their debuts at National 3 level. After a shaky start they settled down and although badly affected by…


Excellent Beavers Win Easily at Middlesbrough

April 10, 2011

An excellent day for Beverley RUFC.  Not only did they soundly defeat one of their fellow relegation strugglers but they picked up a four try bonus point and did it all in some style.  Middlesbrough are a tough side to beat at Acklam Park and with three wins and a draw in their last four matches they probably fancied their chances here.  But Beverley RUFC imposed themselves from the outset…


Beavers Will Not Take Billingham Lightly in Tricky Away Fixture

November 25, 2010

Beverley RUFC travel to Teeside on Saturday to take on Billingham RFC in their National League 3 (North) Fixture. Billingham are struggling somewhat this season and currently lie second to bottom in the table, but the Beavers will be taking nothing for granted as it is evident that, on their day, any team can beat any other in this league, such is the closeness of the competition. Beverley will travel…


Beverley Well Beaten by Birkenhead

A moment of carelessness twenty minutes from time put an end to any chance Beverley might have had of getting something out of this game. Birkenhead held a narrow lead at 10-7 and at that stage it was still anybody’s match. Beverley made a mess of a lineout and this led to a converted Birkenhead try. It proved to be the defining moment of the match. After that it was…

Beavers Seconds Win Easily Against Goole

October 2, 2010

With one of the strongest sides Beverley 2nds have managed to field for quite some time,  the outcome of their match against an obviously young and inexperienced Goole team, looked pretty obvious. The game had only just started before Beverley had their 1st score on the board. Some excellent forward pressure and the ball was turned over far too easily and a simple try was scored. Beverley were clearly showing…


Beavers Beaten By League New Boys Lymm

September 12, 2010

Two evenly matched sides and an exciting encounter at Crouchley Lane.  It could have gone either way.  Both clubs had got their season off to a good start with fine wins and both set out to build on it here by playing fast attacking rugby.  Lymm with the advantage of the slope and blustery wind had the better of the first half. Afterwards Beverley RUFC clawed their way back and…


Sweet Victory for Beverley RUFC on the Road

April 15, 2010

This was an extraordinary game of rugby. Littered equally with mistakes and champagne rugby from the Beavers it was nevertheless an exciting game with, eventually, the right outcome. As is normal with the Beavers, this last away game of the season is used as an occasion for the players to let their hair down, dress up in fancy dress and have a good night out on the way home. Unfortunately…


Rochdale Vs Beverley RUFC

March 8, 2010

This was another disappointing day for Beverley RUFC who were well beaten for the second week running by a side battling to avoid relegation.  After a fine run in mid season they look for the moment to have rather lost their way; in fact an unknowing spectator today would scarcely have guessed that of the two sides it was Rochdale who were the relegation threatened side. They went into 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…


Chester Vs Beverley RUFC

September 21, 2009

Chester 28 Beverley RFC 18 After two fine victories to get their season going this was a rather disappointing performance by Beverley who looked a shadow of the side that had played such sparkling rugby in their previous two games.  They were not helped by early injuries to Junior Tupai and Goran Jelencic but they had a strangely pedestrian look about them and nearly all the good rugby came from…
