Beavers Defeat Leaves Them in Relegation Mix

March 21, 2011

Another disappointing day for Beverley RUFC.  With the clubs below them rapidly closing the gap both these sides needed a win to breathe a bit easier, Beverley RUFC especially. Sadly Beverley RUFC carried on where they left off last week and were again soundly beaten.  The result is that they are now firmly in the relegation mix.  Particularly worrying is that at the moment they look rudderless and a pale…


Walden & Dale Set to Return For Beavers Clash With Lymm

March 17, 2011

Two very important matches are taking place at Beaver Park this Saturday with the first team taking on Lymm who are also in the relegation mix in National League 3 (North) and the 2nds taking on Malton a & Norton in which could well be a Merit League play-off spot decider. It is vital that Beverley RUFC overcome Lymm but the Physio’s room was full on Tuesday night with players…


Beavers Face Stiff Test as Birkenhead Come to Town

March 3, 2011

After yet another postponed game last Saturday, Beverley RUFC hope to return to action this weekend with a home fixture against Birkenhead Park (kick off  3 p.m.). Lying 5th in the league table, BHP are invariably a difficult side to beat and the Beavers will need to be at their best to gain any reward on Saturday. The one benefit of the layoff is that most of the niggling injuries…


Bradford Snatch Victory From Beverley at Beaver Park

February 6, 2011

A pulsating match and a thrilling finish.  A Phil Dale penalty five minutes from time looked to have won it for Beverley but Bradford came back again at the very death to snatch victory with a last gasp penalty. For half the match Bradford gave Beverley RUFC the run-around with some superb back play and it looked like Beverley were in for a mauling as the visitors cruised to an…


Beavers Host High Flyers Chester at Beaver Park

January 20, 2011

Beverley RUFC entertain Chester this Saturday at Beaver Park, kick-off 2.15 p.m., in what should be an enthralling encounter. Chester have been in the top two in the league table all season and, although they slipped up last Saturday and dropped back to third place, they will provide stern opposition for the Beavers. For their part Beverley completely revised their tactics and game plan last Saturday at Sandal and picked…


Beverley RUFC Vs Darlington Mowden Park: Report & Pictures

January 10, 2011

At last some rugby.  After five weeks of snow and frozen grounds Beverley RUFC finally got back into action, albeit on a heavy-going second-team pitch.  They might have wished they had had another week off.  They certainly looked the rustier of the two sides here and could hardly complain at a thirteen points defeat.  With their half backs away in Australia for the rest of the season and several other…


Darlington Mowden Park Too Strong For Beavers as Rugby Returns to Beverley

January 8, 2011

Beverley RUFC returned to action after a long layoff but were beaten by visitors Darlington Mowden Park. Beverley, not for the first time this season, gifted their opponents an early lead in a game that Mowden Park won 30-17. The Beavers did score two tries, James McKay and Manu Kirkwood both crossing the line. Both the tries were converted by Phil Dale, and Jamie Gill added a late penalty goal….


Beavers Hope Forecasters Get it Wrong

December 16, 2010

Beverley RUFC will be keeping an anxious eye on the weather over the next few days in the hope that the forecasters are wrong and the prediction of more heavy snow and ice for Friday and the weekend will not materialise. They are due to visit table topping Stockport for the National 3 (North) fixture on Saturday, for their first action since mid November. They will be without first choice…


Beverley Back to Winning Ways at Beaver Park

November 21, 2010

Only driving rain prevented this from being a real cracker.  Fixtures between these two sides nearly always produce close hard fought encounters and this one promised to be no exception.  In the end it proved to be Beverley’s day, fairly comfortably as it turned out.  The game was played in a great spirit.  Both sides gave it everything and made light of the conditions but Beverley were that bit quicker…


Beverley Aim to Leap Frog Penrith With Victory on Saturday

November 18, 2010

This Saturday’s visitors to Beaver Park are Penrith RFC who lie just above the Beavers in the National 3 (North) League table and will present another stern challenge. Games between the two clubs have been historically close fought encounters over the years and this week’s is not likely to prove an exception. The season is now almost half over, and it has become evident that, with the possible exception of…


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…

Winless Rochdale Next Up For Beverley RUFC

October 28, 2010

Bottom of the table Rochdale are the visitors to Beaver Park on Saturday for the National League 3(North) match between the two struggling sides. Although they are now third from the bottom of the table, Beverley are a far better team than their league position suggests, but they cannot continue to rely on that theoretical analysis. They must start to put together a winning run to back up the theory…


Archibald Likely to Return for Trip to Bradford

October 21, 2010

Beverley RUFC make the relatively short journey to Bradford on Saturday where they take on Bradford & Bingley in the National League 3 North fixture. They will need to improve on their showing of last week when they came second best to a physical Rossendale side which bullied them from start to finish. Beverley could not obtain any satisfactory set piece ball and the 24-36 scoreline rather flattered them. It…


Beverley Entertain Rossendale in Foot of the Table Clash

October 15, 2010

This Saturday’s visitors to Beaver Park are Rossendale RFC who travel from Lancashire to take on Beverley in the National League 3(North) fixture. Lying just one place below the Beavers in the league table, Rossendale are a big, physical side and Beverley need a win to take them away from the foot of the table. Coach James McKay said earlier this week, “Each of our four defeats this season have…


Beavers Fightback Though Lose at Darlington

September 26, 2010

So near and yet so far.  For the second week running Beverley were down and out and then came back superbly to get to within a single score of victory.  In the end they probably lost this one because they gave away too many soft scores in the middle period, principally through poor tackling and wayward kicking out of defence. Once again they completely dominated the first quarter of an…


Shaw Returns as Beaver’s Shuffle the Pack

September 23, 2010

Beverley RUFC travel to the North East on Saturday to face Darlington Mowden Park in their National League 3(North) fixture, kick off 3 p.m. They will be looking to pick up a win to overcome the disappointment of last week’s narrow defeat by Stockport. Both the Beavers and Stockport played some cracking rugby in a highly entertaining game and it has to be said that, had Beverley started with the…


Beavers Without Captain For Trip To Lymm

September 10, 2010

Beverley RUFC face another trip into the unknown this Saturday, when they travel to newly promoted Lancashire Club Lymm.  Lymm started their first season in National 3 North with a 27 – 26  home win over Middlesborough last weekend and will be in a confident move. Beverley RUFC will be encouraged by a fine all round team performance in their win over Waterloo last week but will be hampered by…


Beverley RUFC Beat Waterloo 18 – 11

September 5, 2010

Early autumn sunshine, a lush playing field, and the start of a new season.  All that was needed was a good game and these two sides gave us one.  Beverley probably deserved the victory by virtue of a good second half and having the sharper finishing.  But there was plenty of enterprise throughout by both teams and it was not until ten minutes from the end that an interception try…
