Tough Test to End 2009 for Beverley RUFC

December 17, 2009

Chester RFC are the visitors to Beaver Park this weekend for the final game of 2009 in National League 3 (North).

Thankfully both have recovered well and have been influential in the…


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…

Beverley RUFC Vs Rossendale

November 22, 2009

Some fine enterprising rugby by Beverley RUFC brought them a comfortable victory and lifted them above their opponents in the table.  Overall the game was by no means a classic but some of Beverley RUFC’s play was as good as we have seen all season Beating Rossendale 37 – 10.  Not since the opening matches have they moved the ball so crisply and menacingly as they did here and Rossendale…

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…
