Weather hits local sport

The weekend weather played havoc with local sport, with fixtures for both Beverley Town FC and Beverley RUFC ruled out.

Town were due to travel to North Ferriby Athletic in the Humber Premier League but the game was called off at 6pm on Friday night because of a waterlogged pitch. Similarly the heavy rain all week made the Norwood pitch unplayable for the Beavers.

A final pitch inspection was carried out at 10 on Saturday morning but conditions were judged too dangerous to allow the scheduled match again Old Brodleians to go ahead. It has now been rescheduled to April 28 and will be (short of further cancellations) the final match of the season.

Beverley’s next game is on Saturday March 24th, at home to league leaders Scarborough (3pm kick-off).

Local games that did go ahead included Beverley ARLFC (see separate report) and AFC Walkington, who travelled to South Cave to play on their 3G pitch Рthe game ending in a  4-2 win for Walkington, which took them to fourth in the Humber Premier League, one place ahead of Beverley Town.
