After tea, Ryan Hercules took five wickets as Doncaster fell short on 206 for nine.

 

On Sunday, Barnsley defeated league runners-up Harrogate by five wickets. The visitors were bowled out for 159 as Graeme Whiles struck four times and there were two wickets for Hannon-Dalby, Hercules and Ali Jahangir.

 

Barnsley then chased down their target with the loss of five wickets as Trower again top-scored with 50.
