Tanners Show Spirit In Charity Rugby Clash

April 25, 2011

A big crowd enjoyed an Easter Sunday to remember when Hodgsons FC and Beverley ARLC clashed in a charity football/ rugby league extravaganza at Beverley Leisure Centre. The touchline was crammed with supporters of both clubs – plus a fair number of neutrals – enjoying a beer or five on another lovely spring day. And they weren’t let down by the quality of sport on display. The two teams first…


Fenners Squeeze Past Weakened Blue and Golds

April 3, 2011

The blue and golds went down to a narrow defeat in a game that had a distinct end of season feel to it. Beverley, with a long injury list appeared to have almost half a side watching on the touchline and took the field with a makeshift line up. However they did start the brighter of the two  sides and went close to scoring in the 5th minute when a…


Blue & Golds Are Utterly Outclassed

March 27, 2011

As the massive 80-0 scoreline suggests, this game was one-way traffic with Beverley being totally outclassed by a powerful Duke of York side. The runaway leaders of the division, whose side contained several ex professionals, were far too strong for Beverley. The Blue and Golds had only 14 fit players for the game due to injuries, work commitments and a myriad of other reasons. And to add insult to injury,…


Sullys Beat Blue and Golds in Close Encounter

January 16, 2011

The Blue and Golds let a lead slip for the second successive week and went down to a very disappointing defeat at the Beverley Leisure Centre on Saturday. Leading 12-6 midway through the second half and seemingly in the ascendancy, a restart kick was allowed to go into touch allowing the visitors possession in the Beverley half. Bilton scored off the resultant set of six and quickly added another score…


Beverley Tame the Tigers at the Leisure Centre

September 18, 2010

The blue and golds took the spoils in an encounter which they appeared to possess more big guns than their youthful but enthusiastic opponents but at times made hard work of it. The hosts piled on the pressure early which eventually paid dividends with Gavin Proctor going over from his customary dummy half position in the 10th minute. Shortly after a well worked move amongst the forwards saw popular publican…


Cottingham Tigers Vs Beverley ARLC

May 24, 2010

Beverley ARLFC’s powerhouse pack laid the foundations for  their superb come-from-behind 28-18 Ray Speckman Cup final victory over rivals Cottingham Tigers at Haworth Park on Saturday. In the build-up to the game,  blue and golds’ coach Rich Shaw and captain Steve Davidson had talked about the need to muscle up in defence against a pacy Tigers’ side, certain that if they could contain their opponents’ powerful centres their big, bruising…


Beverley Book Place in Final by Beating Isberg

May 13, 2010

Beverley ARLFC’s rugged pack laid the foundations for the Blue and Golds to power into the final of the Ray Speckman Cup. With man-of-the-match Aaron Horsfield setting the example, Beverley proved too strong for a game Hull Isberg side, running out 36-26 victors to set up a mouthwatering final against East Riding rivals Cottingham Tigers. Although the scoreline suggests a tight game, Beverley’s dominance was such that in reality they…
