LOCAL FOOTBALL: League and cup double for Beverley Reserves
LEAGUE & CUP DOUBLE: Beverley Town Reserves 5 – 1 Withernsea (Saturday May 12)
After clinching the East Riding County League Premier Division title the previous week, Beverley Town FC Reserves made it a league and cup double on Saturday when they beat Withernsea 5-1 in the final off the East Riding Senior Cup, which was played at Bridlington Town’s Queensgate ground.
Club secretary Gary Proud praised it as an all-round team performance and told Beverley FM it had capped a fine season. He said the club would be meeting this week to decide whether to apply for promotion to the Humber Premier League’s Division One for next season. The decision will largely hinge on the impact of additional costs that will be faced by the side.
With all games now complete, Beverley Town have finished their Humber Premier League season in a very creditable third place, behind champions Chalk Lane, and second-placed Pocklington, who won 3-0 away on Saturday to Hedon Rangers.
Beverley had completed their games a fortnight ago and have improved two places on last season’s finish and look well placed for next season when they will return to playing home matches at Norwood after a season at Hutton Cranswick while the pitch was being levelled and relaid.
The club’s players’ night is this Saturday at The Potting Shed at 7.30pm, followed on June 9th by the club’s annual dinner, when guest of honour will be Arsenal legend Paul Merson. MC for the night will be Beverley FM’s Roy Woodcock. The event is already a sell-out.
Meanwhile, AFC Walkington finished their Humber Premier League season in sixth place.
