Beverley RUFC Vs West Hartlepool

March 29, 2010

Beverley RUFC rounded off their club’s fiftieth anniversary celebrations with a fine win in the spring sunshine at Beaver Park.  It was hard and physical but always an enjoyable game to watch.  From the early stages a victory for Beverley RUFC always looked probable but for half an hour they made heavy weather of it and at the interval all they had to show for their domination was a single…


Beverley RUFC Welcome Hartlepool to Beaver Park

March 26, 2010

Beverley RUFC face West Hartlepool in what is their first home game since 6 February and will be hoping to return to winning ways. West have been plagued by relegation worries all season and have languished in the bottom three for most of the season. The Beavers won the fixture in Hartlepool by 39 points to 5 back in early December and will be keen to repeat that performance on…


Stockport Vs Beverley RUFC

March 21, 2010

Beverley paid the price for one dreadful lapse in defence to go down to a narrow defeat at league leaders Stockport.  The wet conditions meant the game was fairly error-strewn and often scrappy, but it was exciting and enjoyable for all that.  It was played throughout in a good spirit for which great credit is due to the refereeing of Simon Lazenby who kept it flowing with the minimum of…


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…


Pearce Expects a Tough Challenge at Cleckheaton

February 26, 2010

After a disappointing home defeat by Penrith last Saturday, courtesy of a dubious last minute penalty, Beverley RUFC travel to Cleckheaton this weekend to take on the West Riding outfit in the National League 3(North) fixture. Although languishing in the bottom three in the table  for most of the season, Cleckheaton looked one of the better sides when the visited Beaver Park last September and coach Barrie Pearce is expecting…


Thriller Sees Beverley Lose With Last Kick of the Game

February 22, 2010

This was a real thriller with the result in doubt until the very end.  Fixtures between these two sides invariably produce fast enjoyable encounters and this was no exception.  Their two games this season have yielded a total of 88 points with only a margin of two points difference between the sides.  Today it was once again a nail-biting affair in which Penrith snatched victory with a penalty at the…


Beverley RUFC Face Top of the Table Morley

February 11, 2010

Beverley RUFC travel the relatively short distance to Morley this Saturday to take on table toppers Morley RUFC in the National League 3 fixture. The Beavers themselves have been gradually creeping up the league table and are now in 5th place. Considering the bad run of injuries that they have experienced this season and the small squad that they have, this is a remarkable achievement. Last week they turned in…


Hancock & Gardiner Missing for Chester Visit

February 4, 2010

Chester RFC are the visitors to Beaver Park this weekend for the twice rearranged game  in National League 3 (North). Beverley RUFC lost the corresponding game at Chester early in the season although they felt hard done by that day losing both Junior Tupai to a broken wrist and Goran Jelencic to concussion, very early in the game. Thankfully both have recovered well and have been influential in the Beavers’recent…


Beverley Ready for the Visit of Middlesbrough

January 28, 2010

Beverley RUFC entertain Middlesbrough RUFC at Beaver Park this Saturday in the National League 3 fixture (kick-off 2.15 p.m. In the corresponding fixture at Middlesbrough last October the Beavers lost narrowly 19-12 but felt very hard done by since they had the best of the game and but for a very questionable decision by an otherwise excellent referee, they would have won. They will clearly be out for revenge 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…


Birkenhead Park Vs Beverley RUFC

December 15, 2009

Beverley RUFC’s unbeaten run ended in disappointing fashion with a lacklustre defeat loosing 19 – 10 at Birkenhead Park who now move above them in the table.  This was just one of those days for Beverley RUFC whose game was error-strewn from start to finish.  After their recent good form they were probably due for an off-day and this was certainly it. They were under pressure from the start as…


West Hartlepool Vs Beverley RUFC

December 6, 2009

West Hartlepool  5    Beverley RUFC  39 Beverley RUFC ended the first half of the league season in fine style with a comprehensive victory over bottom placed West Hartlepool.  This fixture in the past has often proved to be something of a banana skin for Beverley RUFC.  Not this time. They played some scintillating rugby and romped home to move up to sixth in the table.  Some of their rugby here…


McKay & Gardiner Set to Start for Beavers

December 4, 2009

Beverley RUFC hope to build on their recent run of form when they visit bottom of the league West Hartlepool on Saturday for their National League 3 fixture. Despite leaving 1st team regulars James Mckay and Jade Gardiner on the bench last weekend, the Beavers overcame second placed Stockport to record their third consecurive win and stretch their unbeaten record to four matches.

Penrith Vs Beverley RUFC

November 2, 2009

Penrith and Beverley RUFC battled out a 19 – 19 draw on Saturday in a thrilling match and a grandstand finish.  Beverley looked to have won it with a try in the dying seconds but the conversion from in front of the posts went agonisingly wide leaving the game ending in a draw.  Taking the afternoon as a whole it was probably a fair result.  Both teams had contributed to…


Beverley RUFC Vs Morley RFC

October 24, 2009

Beverley RUFC slipped to their fourth defeat in a row loosing out to Morley RFC 9 points to 6. Beverley had a late chance to level the scores though the penalty kick feel short of the posts. Beverley RUFC was once again hit with more injuries worries with Ian Archibald leaving the field of play of play in the second half with a suspected broken arm. Match report: A slippery…


Middlesbrough Vs Beverley RUFC

October 19, 2009

This was more like it.  Although they went down narrowly to high flying Middlesbrough Beverley RUFC were almost back to their best and were desperately unlucky not to win this match.  Not many teams get any change out of a visit to Acklam Park but Beverley RUFC played enough good rugby here to have won this game comfortably.  The home side were seldom in the Beverley RUFC 22 whereas Beverley…


Darlington Mowden Park Vs Beverley RUFC

October 5, 2009

Darlington Mowden Park  36   Beverley 21 – After a disastrous first twenty minutes which left them trailing 21-5 Beverley steadily clawed their way back to 21-all only to succumb to two late tries and go down to a convincing defeat.  It was a strange game.  There was plenty of good rugby on view but for Beverley also plenty of frustration.  Time and again when they should have kept the ball…
