Sheffield Collegiate slumped to a seven-wicket loss when they faced South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham Town on Saturday.

Deciding to bat first was a decision that quickly backfired as Collegiate were all out for a hundred in 46.1 overs.

James Moorehouse, opening the batting for Rotherham, made 38 not out and Stuart Guy’s 44 all but sealed Collegiate’s fate as Rotherham reached 104 for three to win.

Sheffield United were left disappointed after losing their match to Appleby Frodingham having been in a commanding position.

An excellent bowling display put United in the ascendency as Appleby were all out for 161.

However despite 70 runs from Mark Cummins a disastrous innings saw them score only 149, taking just two bonus points as consolation.

Barnsley had their bowlers to thank after an impressive display saw them turn their innings of 156 for nine into a win as they hosted Cleethorpes.

Oliver Hanning-Dalby headed the attack for Barnsley, recording figures of four for 24 in ten overs.

Graham Whiles also provided some economic bowling, taking three wickets for 14 runs in seven overs. Further wickets from Nathn Firn and Ryan Hercules saw the sea-siders all out for 82.

Doncaster had a bad day at the office as two of Driffield’s first three batsmen hit centuries.

Aamer Sajjad’s 128 and Sam Drury’s 138 left Driffield with a score of 346 for three after 53 overs.

Doncaster’s Gareth Cox hit 51 and James Stuart scored 74 but it wasn’t enough as Ollie Ezard ripped through the order as he took six wickets and Doncaster were bowled out for 174.
