Vishvaraj Jadeja (67) and Johnny Younis (48 not out) top scored for the hosts as they reached 238-6 before Jake Rodgers took three quick wickets when Barnsley replied. Gunoor Singh (42) provided the principal resistance, but Mark Cummins polished off the tail with figures of 3.1-1-2-4 as the visitors were bowled out for 94.

Fifties from Joe Norbury and Danny Kemp gave Whiston Parish Church a solid platform at 142-1 at home to Upper Haugh after they had elected to bat first. Samuel Thompson then took 3-28 for the visitors as Whiston reached 203-8. R Khan made 92 in the visitors' reply, and put on 70 for the sixth wicket with Naveed Shah, but once they had been parted, the innings fell away and they were all out 167, with three wickets for Jack Moran.
