Weekend Review – 6th December 2021

Three wins from five games this weekend marks quite a successful weekend. Beverley Town, North Ferriby and Beverley RUFC all with another tally in the games won column.

Beverley Town are now three wins from three league games following a 5-0 victory over Hornsea. Town has scored 13 without conceding a goal following a minor wobble. Chris Adams and Jonny Morritt both contributed with goals, but the man of the moment was Joe Norton who scored a second-half hat-trick. Much to the frustrations of manager, Mike Thompson, Beverley cannot follow up the victory next week as they are without a game once again.

Hull City made it five games unbeaten with a 1-1 draw away at Reading. The Tigers rode their luck at times throughout the game but will be happy with a point. Malik Wilks found himself on the scoresheet for the third time this season after a long-range effort squirmed under Southwood, it cancelled out the acrobatic strike by Tom Holmes before half-time.

Hall Road Rangers unbeaten run of six league games came to an end at the hands of Glasshoughton Welfare. In recent weeks some good results have seen Rangers climb the table rapidly. Welfare were deserved of the victory, every time Hall Road seemed to be getting back into the game the visitors found another gear. Oliver Harsley reported from Haworth Park on Rangers 5-2 defeat.

There was no doubt about North Ferriby picking up points once again. The Villagers are still unbeaten in league football this season and sit handsomely at the top of the NCEL Division One following another convincing victory. The weather conditions were poor, but this did not hinder Ferriby’s dominance as they ran out 4-0 winners over Rainworth Miners Welfare.

The supporters and guests at Beaver Park yesterday were treated to an early Christmas present from the players of Huddersfield YMCA and Beverley. Both teams battling to the end and delivering a very entertaining game of rugby with a thrilling finish. A crunch game, two mid-table teams needing to find more points in the league, who delivered an exhilarating afternoon of rugby with the home team finishing victorious 34-30.
