After the hosts had elected to bat first, New Zealand overseas Jacob Cumming (35) and new skipper Liam Johnson (40) put on 78 for the hosts’ first wicket, but Mayank Mishra then took 6-31 for the Seasiders as Barnsley collapsed to 146 all out; Ciaran Stenton running out of partners and ending unbeaten on 41.

In reply, the visitors were 46-6 after Kazim Hassan (5-20) and Tom Bolland had taken three wickets each, before Ben Carrigan (36) and Thomas Currie (58) effected a partial recovery with a seventh-wicket stand of 72.

The visitors then lost four wickets in overhauling their modest target. There was no play at all in the games at Aston Hall, Elsecar and Upper Haugh.

Put in to bat by Sheffield University Staff at Warminster Road, visitors Fishlake were indebted to skipper Tim Elliot (39*), who added 33 in an unbroken last-wicket stand with Freddie Stevens, for their modest 105-9. But that total proved more than enough, Keith Bee taking 5-14 as the hosts were bundled out for 64. The games at Rotherham and Whiston Forge were both cancelled. 
Two games survived in Division 6, where Iain MacDonald was the match-winner for Thorpe Hesley & High Green 2nds after they were put in to bat by Hatfield 2nds at Carr Side Lane. His 50 at the top of the order helped them to reach 128-8, and in reply, the hosts were 20-6 against Callum Gray (4-22) before skipper Gareth Stent (40) provided some resistance.

Frecheville Community 2nds recovered from 24-5 to reach 150 against Mexborough Athletic 2nds at the Beecroft Estates ground, thanks mainly to Ben Shirt Clarkson (41) and Adil Hussain (32*). Jonathan Guest (4-32) was the most successful bowler for the hosts, who were quickly 14-3 in reply. Jamil Hussain (54) and Dan Stanton (55) then added 95 for the fourth wicket, and Mexborough looked on top at 109-3.

The games at Elsecar (Wentworth), Rockingham (Stainborough) and Womnbwell were all cancelled. 
The solitary game played in Division 9 was another low-scoring affair.

Opener Linton Shore then hit an unbeaten 36 off 26 balls whilst the hosts' James Shuttleworth caused the other batsmen problems with 3-7 in his five overs, but that was not enough to prevent Silkstone recording a six-wicket win inside ten overs. The games at Dearne, Fishlake and Scholes were all cancelled. 
In the K3 Dental Cup, Harry Warwick (126 off 123 balls) and Harry Clewett (65) put on 163 for Cleethorpes’ 3rd wicket against Whitley Hall at Chichester Road after they had elected to bat first. The rest of the batsmen struggled against the visitors’ attack, with Biswick Kapala taking 3-25, and the hosts were restricted to 225-7 in their 40 overs. Opener Andrew Pickering (75) led the way for Whitley Hall in reply, and with contributions from batsmen down the order, they recorded a six-wicket win with two overs to spare. Elsecar asked visitors Cawthorne to bat first at the Al-Murad Stadium, and the visitors posted 199 all out, thanks largely to Liam Wiles, who carried his bat for an unbeaten 96. His only significant support came from Archie Greaves, with whom he shared a seventh wicket stand of 96. Jason Meadows recorded an impressive 6-14 for the hosts.
