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).

Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback

Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback
March 7, 2020

What an extraordinary match. The final score made it look close but it seldom was. After twenty-five minutes Beverley was cruising at 19 – 0 up and playing some fluent attacking rugby.

Fifty minutes later they were 40-26 down having been given a thorough going-over by a resurgent home side. A strong comeback in the last five minutes then brought them back up to within two points to earn them a bonus point.

Pontefract Beat Beverley In Forgettable Encounter

Pontefract Beat Beverley In Forgettable Encounter
January 13, 2020

Not much to write home about here. This was pretty dire stuff. Beverley will want to forget it as quickly as possible, and so will most of the spectators.

Pontefract were the better of the two sides and fully deserved their win but neither team or the game generally, ever really got going.

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win
January 6, 2020

Beverley RUFC has been doing things the tough way this season, having had 4 narrow defeats and regular absenteeism through injury and unavailability, they still found themselves sitting third in the league with a fighting chance of regaining one of the top two spots.

An away trip to Leodiensian RUFC in Leeds, who are the only team to have beaten the previously undefeated top of the table Old Brodleians, was definitely an opportunity to succumb to a fifth defeat, given again there were many absentees from the starting line-up.

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.

Heath Claim Deserved Win Over Beverley At Beaver Park

Heath Claim Deserved Win Over Bevelrey At Beaver Park
October 20, 2019

Beverley knew the visit of Heath to Beaver Park was going to be a tough one. It always is, and more recently the men from Halifax have had the edge, utilising their strength to better advantage than Beverley’s.

Heath’s strength being a forward pack that is probably the strongest and best drilled in the league, Beverley’s strength is their fast and creative backs that can score tries from anywhere.

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 RUFC End Season With Victory Over Old Broadleians

Beverley RUFC End Season With Victory Over Old Broadleians
April 13, 2019

Beverley RUFC entertained Old Brodleians in the last match of the season at Beaver Park in this Yorkshire League Division 1 game and what a cracking match it turned out to be.

Brodlieans kicked off towards the clubhouse and as Beverley mounted an attack up the right flank an interception from a sloppy pass in the Beverley backs led to a try to Brods in the third minute (0-5). Play then settled down with each side sharing possession in the midfield.

Beverley Beat Middlesbrough In An Absorbing Encounter

Beverley Beat Middlesbrough In An Absorbing Encounter
March 30, 2019

With several of their most influential players absent, this looked like being a tough afternoon for Beverley.  Not a bit of it.  This was an altogether absorbing match and a fine performance by the young Beverley side. 

In recognition of the Club’s annual Ladies Day, they turned out in pink shirts and flowery shorts but mercifully did not play accordingly.  Far from being a drab end of season affair, this was a cracking game with some top quality play by both sides.
