Harry Beautyman the subject of two horror tackles and a stamp by Halifax

Published 6 Comments

Halifax and Welling United went head-to-head in the Vanarama Conference earlier this month - and Welling United's number eight Harry Beautyman was the subject of some rough stuff.

A YouTube video has surfaced slicing together the best (or worst) bits from some thoroughly disgraceful tackles put in on the talented Welling midfielder.

Halifax's number five, Matty Pearson, comes out of the video the worst. He puts a disgusting two-footed tackle onto Beautyman's knee and somehow escapes without sanction in the first of four clips.

He's then involved in a couple more incidents before EVENTUALLY getting sent off for a nasty stamp on the midfielder towards the end of the game.

Pearson, an England C international, is not the only culprit though as defender Scott McManus flies in with a reckless challenge on Beautyman that quite easily could have ended in serious injury.

Beautyman, 22, has been sensational for Welling since dropping out of the Football League after his time with Leyton Orient. He's bagged 45 goals in 130 Conference appearances, earning himself a move back up to the professional ranks with Peterborough United.

He's only on loan with Posh but will sign permanently when the transfer window reopens in six weeks time.

Back to the video, and you'll be pleased to know Welling won the game 2-1. It's not a great reflection on the Conference though, which is the fifth tier of English football and feeds into League Two.

Have a look at the video below, can you remember a game in which one player was ever subjected to such an awful barrage of tackles in the same game?
