Stansfield Makes It Six Wins From Six At Sewerby

Stansfield Makes It Six Wins From Six At Sewerby

Bev AC at Sewerby

Strong winds challenged runners taking part in the final fixture of this year’s East Yorkshire Cross Country League. Organised by Bridlington Road Runners, the race was held on the coast at Sewerby. Runners were pushed along by a tail wind as they headed away from the start but had to finish their five and a half miles of cliff-edge path, muddy field edges, and two sets of energy-sapping steps, by fighting through a powerful headwind back home. Twenty two Beverley athletes competed in a field of 129 runners, and like last year, the club’s runners won the individual and team women’s races.

Beverley’s Carla Stansfield was first female athlete to cross the line, completing a run of six victories in all the League races. She clocked 36:44, which was fast enough to take 17th place overall. Joining her in the winning female team were Ellen Harrison, who was 3rd woman in a great time of 38:44, and Lucy Stamford who was 17th in 47:26.

City of Hull AC were first men’s team. In the fourth place Beverley team, two runners made it into the top ten places for the race. Relative newcomer Richard Buckle was first for the club, taking 6th place in 35:42. He was chased to the line by Lewis Holloway, who was 7th in 35:44. Next for Beverley were Darren Rodmell who finished in 36:56, Darren Edge (38:52), Dave Morrison (39:25) and Andy Johnson (40:25). The winner of the men’s race was Shaun Pickering (Bridlington RR) who crossed the line in 34:46.

As this was the final race in the 6-race League, prizes were awarded at the end of the event to those who had performed well throughout the winter. Runners’ positions in their best 5 races are used to decide on these awards. Beverley’s runners took several awards. Carla Stansfield was first female athlete overall after her excellent performance all season. Carrie Smith was 2nd in her LV35 age group, and Pam Atkins was first in her LV65 category. Of the men, Lewis Holloway was second overall in the League and first in the MV40 age group, and Peter Watkinson was first in his MV60 class. The overall winner of the men’s league was Danny Durose (Goole Viking Striders). Beverley’s men’s team finished the League in second place overall, behind City of Hull AC. City of Hull’s female team also finished first, with Beverley’s women taking fourth place.

Beverley AC finishing times at Sewerby: Richard Buckle 35:42; Lewis Holloway 35:44; Carla Stansfield 36:54; Darren Rodmell 36:56; Ellen Harrison 38:44; Darren Edge 38:52; Dave Morrison 39:25; Andy Johnson 40:25; Luke Davison 40:32; Paul Clark 41:18; Phil Reese 41:25; Alan Flint 47:11; Lucy Stamford 47:26; Alison Stabler 55:20; Steve Willietts 56:13; Pam Atkins 60:35; Kay Farrow 61:40; Jacqui Dickinson 61:48; Christine Whitehouse 61:41; Penny Booth 64:33; John Boardley 66:05; Sarah Tock 66:35

A Brave Fightback To No Avail In Beverley Defeat

A Brave Fightback To No Avail In Beverley Defeat

A Brave Fightback To No Avail In Beverley Defeat

Good in parts but overall not a particularly memorable afternoon.  After their steadily improving recent performances today was disappointing for Beverley.  Yet despite not playing particularly well they fought back from 20-0 down to get to within a single score of taking the lead at 17-20.  They might easily have got it but then came a yellow card and that was the end of it.  With the man short they quickly conceded another twelve points.  As a contest it was all over.

Beverley kicked off with a stiff breeze behind them and would have scored in the first minute had Sam Atiola not ignored a two man overlap outside him.  Wirral’s response was immediate.  They kicked deep to Beverley’s corner, won the lineout, and drove over with prop Jack Yarker getting the touchdown.  Seven minutes later they went 8-0 up when Beverley backchat to the referee moved a penalty to within kicking distance of goal and full back James Annetts added an easy three points.

Beverley were playing with plenty of endeavour but not with a great deal of cohesion.  Too often promising moves came to nothing through a handling error or the reluctance of a runner to use the support outside him.  Nevertheless Beverley had a good twenty minutes.  Their pack was well on top and at one stage drove Wirral back some forty metres.  Alex Ogilvie and Jack Bunn in particular were both putting in a good shift. Beverley remained camped in Wirral territory for a long spell but could not find the cutting edge to break through.

Wirral were the more slick and sharper in their execution.  Beverley certainly had plenty of possession but their back play in comparison was relatively ponderous and lacking in incisiveness.  A fine run down the right by Wirral centre Daniel Harvey led to a try for flanker Mike Warren which Annetts converted.  It was a double blow for Beverley because Phil Duboulay injured himself making a tackle and had to depart the field.  They had already lost Richard Bussey with probable concussion which left them short of their two most potentially dangerous backs.  With only one back on the bench Beverley were forced to re-jig their backline but rather surprisingly opted to put Lewis Starbuck, their main lineout jumper, out on the wing.

Things immediately got even worse.  Wirral fielded the restart kick and wing Ali Baker romped away through numerous missed tackles down the left touchline to score a third try.  Nevertheless Beverley got back into it five minutes before halftime with a penalty by Ryan Murray who was at fly half after the departure of Duboulay.  Beverley were enjoying plenty of territorial play in spite of the score and deservedly closed the gap on the stroke of halftime with a nicely worked try by Craig Hancock who sprinted over from twenty metres.  Murray converted and the halftime score of 20-10 more reflected the play of the first half although it still perhaps looked a bit harsh on Beverley.

Eight minutes into the second half Beverley narrowed the gap even further when they were awarded a penalty try after Wirral had repeatedly offended at a series of penalty scrums five metres out.  Murray again converted.  Only three points in it and Beverley were now in the ascendancy.  Suddenly the game had become an exciting contest and Beverley went all out for the lead.

Sadly with twenty minutes left it all fell apart at the seams.  James McKay was yellow carded for going into a maul illegally, Wirral kicked the penalty to the corner, moved the ball out from the lineout, and Baker crossed for a converted try.  It was all over for Beverley.  Warren quickly added another try when Beverley lost the ball and two minutes from time number eight Rob Pearl touched down for a sixth.  Beverley stuck at it until the end without being able to create any clear-cut chances but the yellow card had long earlier already done for them.

Blue & Golds Claim Tow More Championship Points Against Hull

Blue & Golds Claim Tow More Championship Points Against Hull

Blue & Golds Claim Tow More Championship Points Against Hull

The blue and golds picked another two league points on their relentless quest towards signing off from the Hull & District League Division One as champions.

There were some outstanding individual plays in attack mixed in with a few sloppy moments in defence, which kept coach Pat Howdle and another large crowd on the edge until the final quarter of the game.

Alex Nightingale and Mike Cooper were unavailable due to work commitments. This forced a minor re=shuffle of the side with Steve Connolly switched to hooker from his normal loose forward spot and youngster Billy Riby got a start at full back.

The visitors were first on the scoreboard after five minutes taking advantage of some slack marker defence close to the line by Beverley. The try was scored from dummy half, but the conversion missed. The re-start kick bounced into touch immediately giving Beverley a set of six inside the visitors 20.

The pressure paid off with Jack Howdle going over from dummy half with Watkin converting. The home side with their tails up continued to press, and a spell inside the North Hull 20 saw Lewis Poskitt sidestep his way to a try for Watkin to again convert.

The visitors were a spirited oufit and one of their props were a constant thorn in Beverley’s flesh. He was on hand to score from close range to reduce the home sides lead to 12-10 with a converted try. The home side recovered their composure three minutes before the break after forcing a repeat set inside the visiting 20.

The resulting pressure ending in Glen Anfield’s astute long pass sending Ben Calvert over wide out. Watkin again added the extras. Some more lapses in concentration by the hosts allowed North Hull to score right on the stroke of half time. The extras were added, and Beverley had only a slender 18-16 interval lead.

The home side began the second half in buoyant mood and after a couple of promising raids on their opponent’s line, Steve Connolly was on hand to score from dummy half. Watkin converted. The visitors showed their frustration at this stage and were penalised for a high tackle. A resultant quickly tap was taken and Glen Anfield scythed his way through to score for the ever reliable Watlkin to convert. The hosts were keen to finish the job off, and some exciting attacking plays ended with Josh Pooley and Craig Morfitt both being held up over the line. The constant pressure finally paid off when Beverley ran a play on the last tackle and sent Jack Howdle over for his second with the extras added.

A plucky North Hull oufit pulled back a try before another burst of scoring in the final quarter by the home side. Lewis Poskitt showed great vision with his kick ahead exploiting the pace of Glen Anfield, who regathered to score another converted try. Moments later, an outstanding attacking play saw Lee Falcus take a tap from his own 20 feed Glen Anfield to take a return pass and feed Josh Pooley, who took the tackle close to the visiting line.

The field position was set up, and a smart blind side call from Guy Adams saw him feed Ryan Watkin, who in turn sent Ben Calvert over in the corner for his second. The failed conversion was Watkin’s only miss of the afternoon. With full time fast approaching the visitors coughed up possession in their own half. Jack Howdle gathered the ball and immediately kicked ahead to again exploit Anfield’s pace for him to regather and complete his hat-trick. Watkin added his eight goal of the afternoon.

Man of the match was Glen Anfield with his hat-trick catching the eye, but Billy Riby acquitted himself well in the full back position with one vital try- saving tackle. Furthermore, Lewis Poskitt was instrumental in most of Beverley’s attacking threats.
This Saturday Beverley has a tougher examination with a trip to Myton Academy kicking off at 2pm at the Marist Sporting club. Earlier in the season

Beverley lost narrowly 22-17 to the same side in the league at the Leisure Centre but knocked them of the Tom Beautiman cup 20-14 on their opponents own soil.

Beverley Town Come From Behind To Earn A Point At Norwood

Town Come From Behind To Earn A Point At Norwood

Town Come From Behind To Earn A Point At Norwood

Beverley Town FC shared the spoils as they were held at home by Pocklington Town in the Humber Premier League.

A poor first half from the champions saw the home side go into the break behind. Ryder Smith however came up with the all important equaliser early in the second period as Beverley battle back for a point at the Norwood Recreation Ground.

Speaking after the game gaffer Ross Cording said;

“We got the first half completely wrong, we kept giving the ball away. At the break we had words and the team were much better in the second half.”

“Overall on the balance of play I felt we done enough to win the game but given the circumstances today and lack of players due to a host of reasons I am happy we got some sort of result.”

“There were plenty of positives in the second half, the lads got the ball on the deck and played some nice football. We also closed down Pocklington much better in the second period.”

“My new assistant coach Chris Rhodes had big influence today with his tactical knowledge.”

Cording was very short of bodies for the game, players were away representing other sides leaving him with just one substitute.

Off the pitch Beverley Town’s manager also took the opportunity to thank Rob and Sandra from the Moulders Arms. The couple have provided a set of jackets for the back room staff, Ross said;

“On behalf of everyone at the club I would like to thank them both personally for jackets, we are all very grateful.”

Beverley Town return to Humber Premier League action next weekend when they take on Hedon Rangers.

Final Score: Beverley Town FC 1 Pocklington Town 1

Fitness and Desire Won Us The Game Says Pat Howdle

Tom Beautiman Cup : Howdle Expects Tough Match Against Dockers

The blue and golds return to action this Saturday in the Hull & District League with a fixture at home to North Hull Knights ‘A’.

There are doubts about the availability of a number of Pat Howdle’s bigger names due to work commitments. With this in mind, a number of squad members such as Billy Riby, Joe Wileman and Harry Bulleyment will be standing by hoping for some valuable game time.

Team selection is likely not to take place until close to kick off time, which is 2pm at the Beverley Leisure Centre.

Meanwhile, club officials attended a pre-season meeting of clubs in the Yorkshire Mens League last Wednesday at Shaw Cross RLFC, Dewsbury.

Over 50 clubs from around the county attended an informative and positive briefing. A draft fixture list was distributed to clubs which after a few amendments will be released.

A pre-season cup competition for existing members will start this Saturday February 28th, but the league will start on April 11th. Beverley ARLC will start on April 11th when they have hopefully fulfilled their remaining Hull & District League fixtures.
