Beveridge played as a centreman and was noted for his handballing skills. He finished equal seventh in the 1933 Brownlow Medal and was a member of the Collingwood side which won four premierships in a row under Jock McHale.

After leaving Collingwood he joined West Perth in the WANFL and helped them to win their second consecutive premiership.[2]

In 1937 he moved to Tasmania and was captain-coach of Launceston, the club winning the NTFA premiership for the fifth consecutive season and also the State premiership for that season.[3]

Beveridge's grandson, Luke, also played football at VFL/AFL level and currently coaches the Western Bulldogs who he coached to the 2016 AFL premiership.
