Beverley Get Back To Winning Ways On The Road At Huddersfield

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
April 3, 2022

Happily, for both these sides, there is no relegation from Yorkshire One this season; otherwise, this might have been a tense relegation dogfight. 

In the event it was an enjoyable and entertaining game with plenty of running rugby; carefree, almost, with nothing much at stake.  Huddersfield YMCA must have one of the most pleasant playing grounds in the league and with ideal conditions and a fine sunny afternoon, there was every reason to hope for a good game.

Depleted Beavers Unable To Cause Upset In Local Derby With Bridlington

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
March 14, 2022

The local derby trip to Bridlington for the Beavers was always going to be a tough challenge. The previous week Brid came away with an away win at top of the table Old Crossleyans and look to have secured the fourth spot in the league, which is the last promotion spot.

The weather was good for an open game of rugby, and in patches, Beverley’s backs looked impressive, unfortunately, the power of the imported front row and backline of the forward pack was too much, and Bridlington was deserved winners by the end of the afternoon scoring 46 points to Beverley’s 15.

Beverley’s Fine Defensive Work Pays Off As They Secure Home Win

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
March 7, 2022

Frequent spells of swirling rain and a fierce wind blowing diagonally from corner to corner; it might have been expected that this would be an afternoon of uninspiring rugby for supporters and those attending the ex-players reunion. 

But surprisingly both sides made light of the conditions and produced an enthralling game with plenty of running rugby and end to end action.

Beavers Beaten But Effort and Commitment Can Not Be Faulted

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
February 27, 2022

The trip to Selby for the Beavers was always going to be a tough challenge, the physicality of the Selby pack and their ever-improving form in the league would always be a big test, especially for a Beverley team that has only won once this side of Christmas.

However, there was some hope as the weather relented the sun shone and the pitch was firm, although a little billowy there was a chance that Beverley’s own style of play might be allowed, and there was a sense of genuine hope that a victory might be achievable.

Beavers Can Take Some Confidence From West Leeds Defeat

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
January 23, 2022

A highly entertaining afternoon at Beaver park with ten tries, 5 yellow cards plenty of flowing rugby but Beverley ended up on the wrong end of a 24 -34 scoreline.

It was clear from the off that both teams’ intent and ability to attack was greater than the organisation of their defences. Within two minutes a sweeping move to the left with slick handling by Rob Smith and Dan Lee allowed Luke Hazell the luxury of time to slip recover and run over from 30 metres out. 5-0 Beverley.

Last-Gasp Try Gives Beverley’s Travelling Support Something To Cheer About

Hullensians Hit Back In Final Minutes To Beat Beverley Seconds
November 14, 2021

Never pretty to watch but in the end, it all came to life with an exciting finish.  Given that they were never really competing in the first half this was a good result for Beverley. 

Throughout the half, they had been dire, totally lacking in any urgency or adventure.  It was as though they had been addressed pre-match by an official from the Health and Safety Executive.  A better side than Leodensians might have put thirty or forty points past them before halftime.

Beverley Secure Convincing Win Over Bradford Salem

Beavers Beaten On The Road By Old Crossleyans
September 26, 2021

This was more like it. After two lacklustre defeats, Beverley celebrated the Club’s Ladies Day with a convincing win to move up to fifth in the table.

Bradford are unlikely to be among the league’s front runners this year unlike Middlesborough and Old Crossleyans, Beverley’s last two opponents, but this was nonetheless an impressive showing by the home side.

Beavers Beaten On The Road By Old Crossleyans

Beavers Beaten On The Road By Old Crossleyans
September 12, 2021

After the turgid rugby of the British Lions South African tour watching rugby again as it should be played has been like a breath of fresh air. Sadly today it all came from Crossleyans.

Beverley were given the runaround for the whole of the first half and much of the second by a side which looked twice as determined and twice as quick. After their fine performance the previous week this was a hugely disappointing showing even allowing for the superior quality of this week’s opposition.

Beverley Secure Win As Rugby Finally Returns To Beaver Park

Beverley Secure Win As Rugby Finally Returns To Beaver Park
September 6, 2021

At last, Rugby returned to Beaver Park with Beverley entertaining Old Rishworthian RFC from Halifax and entertained them and a reasonable crowd to some highly promising rugby.

The Beavers have lost a number of last years squad but look to have a useful set of youngsters ready to replace them. Playing towards the clubhouse they took an early lead after 10 minutes through a Phil Duboulay penalty (3-0).

Disappointing Performance From Beavers Sees Them Beaten By Goole

Disappointing Performance From Beavers Sees Them Beaten By Goole
December 8, 2019

A dry day with high cloud and a gentle breeze and a pitch in very good condition given the recent wet weather, bode well for the game between these old rivals, who last competed in a league fixture in 2005.

There is no commentary around the first 5 minutes of the game as the referee blew his whistle for the game to start “a few minutes” early. Unfortunately, the news did not filter to the spectators in the bar.

Beaver Are Worthy Winners Beating Dinnington At Beaver Park

Beaver Are Worthy Winners Beating Dinnington At Beaver Park
November 11, 2019

Beverley knew the visit of Dinnington RUFC to Beaver Park was going to be a tough one after last season’s encounter when they stifled the Beverley game plan so effectively it was reminiscent of what South Africa did to England last weekend. 

This occasion had a much better outcome for the Beavers, playing at home in the cold sunshine on a squelchy pitch, an entertaining 9 try game saw Beverley finish worthy winners 36-22.

Beverley Remain Second After Beating Local Rival Hullensians

Beverley Remain Second After Beating Local Rival Hullensians
October 13, 2019

In recent seasons Beverley at Hullensians have performed wretchedly, suffered defeat, and seen their season start to fall away.

This time though they never looked remotely like the side that had racked up over two hundred points in their last four games they at least they came away with the five-point win they wanted.

Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory

Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory
March 12, 2019

Beware the ides of March.  But not this week.  After the dismal affair a week ago at Dinnington Beverley were back on top form securing another outstanding bonus point win – the seventh in their last eight games. 

Crossleyans started the match only one point behind Beverley but never really got a look-in and Beverley comfortably cruised home scoring six tries in the process all of which Phil Duboulay converted in difficult conditions.

Beverley Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians

Beverley Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians
January 13, 2019

New year, new Beverley. After a disappointing late autumn in which they rather lost their way Beverley in 2019 look to have recaptured the early season spark that had them riding high in Yorkshire One.

Following their impressive win the previous week against Pontefract this was another first-class display and another well earned victory. Moreover, for most of the game, they did it with fourteen men after Alfie Hart-Fisher had been red-carded early on for dangerous play. They owed a lot to their pack which even down to seven men still ended the game looking the stronger of the two sets of forwards.
