History

History

Beverley Town_edited.jpg

Beverley Town Football Club has been in existence since 1902, when the club joined the East Riding County League. The first recorded honours for Town came in 1910/11 with victory in the Hospital Cup (later Stanley Wilson Cup). Although, following this, the club was forced to disband in 1914 with the start of the first World War.

 

The club reformed after the end of the war and remained in sporadic existence until 1939, when football was once again suspended due to the second World War.

Some momentum was finally gained in 1948 after a merger with local side Beverley Rangers, which saw the team moved to its current home at the Norwood Recreation Ground. This came after former professional player Jack Gittoes, who had previously plied his trade at Coventry City and Blackpool, persuaded his fellow cricket committee members to allow football onto the ground for the first time. Despite the untimely passing of Jack Gittoes in 1951, the team continued to play at Norwood.

 

In 1954 a further merger occurred – this time with Beverley United. This helped strengthen the club further and allowed Town to establish themselves as a competitive force on the East Riding County League scene – a status it retained for the next two decades.

 

However, following disagreements with the grounds committee, the club left Norwood in 1970 and a nomadic existence was to follow. This resulted in Beverley Town sides playing at various venues over the ensuing years, including the former Victoria Barracks (now a Morrisons supermarket), the Hodgsons Recreation Ground, 
Longcroft School, as well as Orchard Park playing fields in nearby Hull.

The Club was a member of the East Riding County League for almost 100 years, before becoming a founding member of the Humber Premier League in 2000

Humber Premier League

After joining the Humber Premier League in 2000, Town enjoyed some notable successes, before being promoted to NCEL Division 1 in 2022.

It was not until 2000, when the side became a founder member of the then newly formed Humber Premier League, that it finally became established as a presence of note once again. 
 

Town returned to its roots at the Norwood Recreation Ground and steady progress has been made since. In 2010, the club won the Grays League Cup and lifted its first Humber Premier title in 2012/13 – losing only one game in the process. A year later Town lifted the Northern Counties Senior Cup – becoming one of only two East Riding sides to have done so. A further Humber Premier title was won in 2020/21.

The following season the club were runners-up, but gained promotion to the NCEL Division One as improvements to the Norwood ground meant it finally fulfilled league eligibility. This included the installation of a 56-seater stand named in honour of former player and local school teacher Ivan Usher.

 

Beverley Town were the best supported side in its debut 2022/3 NCEL Division One season and it is hoped that Beverley can finally have a team that the whole town can get behind.

Over the years several players who have represented Beverley Town at either junior or senior level have gone on to play in the professional game. These include former Leeds, Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson, as well as former Hull City players John Hawley, Ray Clubley, Linton Brown and Gavin Kelly. The team were also trained for a period in the 1960s by Hull City players John McSeveney and Andy Davidson – who remains Hull City’s record appearances holder
