The Blue and Golds were in this contest for 50 minutes but sadly faded in the final 30 minutes of the game which was once again played in very hot conditions.
Now sitting 7 points adrift of Wigan St Judes in the table, only the unlikely event of them winning all of their last 4 games and St Jude’s losing their remaining 2 can save them from the drop to division 3 now.
This was another tough day at the office for the Blue and Golds, with positives again being drawn by the effort and enthusiasm that is being shown by the young squad.
It was a similar story to previous weeks, where Beverley looked to be building momentum but turned over possession at vital stages and the opposition took advantage. Sam French’s message to the players was again ”We need to play smarter”.
The tough schedule of matches took its toll on the Blue and Golds as they were beaten 50-0 by West Hull.
A depleted Beverley outfit, backing up from Thursday evening’s outing at Hull Dockers, simply had to do too much defending. A full-strength West Hull outfit took full advantage to hit the half-century mark.
The blue and golds season will be on the line today when they take on East Hull at the Beverley Leisure Centre in their 2.30pm kick-off.
Beverley are looking to secure a top four spot and qualify for the play-offs. Realistically, the hosts must win as they lie in 5th place level on points with fourth placed Bentley whose point difference is superior by 35.
The blue and golds are bidding for a fourth successive Yorkshire Premier Division win this Saturday when they entertain Queensbury for the first time in the 2.30PM kick off at the Beverley Leisure Centre.
Queensbury who are from the Bradford area were promoted from Yorkshire Division One last year and are more than holding their own top division with 3 wins from 7 starts.
