Free-scoring York created a Yorkshire ECB League record in their home match against an under-strength Barnsley side.

The league leaders amassed a record 425 before declaring after 50 overs and then bowling out Barnsley for 150 to complete a 275-run win.

Left-hander Duncan Snell scored 187 before being run out having hit 19 fours and 11 sixes during which he passed 1,000 runs for season.

Snell shared an opening stand of 221 with Yorkshire all-rounder Jack Leaning, who made 50. Snell then joined Laim McKendry in a second wicket stand of 124, McKendry hitting an unbeaten 100, including 18 boundaries.

Snell, who made 157 not out against Hull six days earlier, holds the league’s first wicket partnership record with Dan Wilson against Castleford in 2008.

Leaning, who has been playing for Yorkshire in the YB40 competition in recent matches, followed up his half century by taking five for 10 with his off spin and fellow spinner Dan Woods took three for 43 to complete the overwhelming victory that leaves York 20 points ahead of their nearest challengers, Yorkshire Academy.

The Academy won by 65 runs at Appleby Frodingham after totalling 246 for seven. Appleby Frodingham replied with 181.

Scarborough openers Darren Harland with 126 and Andrew Simpson 125 shared an unbroken partnership of 261 in a 10-wicket win against Cleethorpes - it was their fifth win in a row. Cleethorpes made 259 for five with 15-year-old Tom Keast top scoring with 68 while another promising teenager, 13-year-old Jordan Cook made 34 not out.

Former Yorkshire wicket-keeper Simon Guy with 86 and Jacob Waterson 28 took part in a third-wicket stand of 133 for Sheffield Collegiate while opener Alex Patmore scored 91 in their 53-run home win over Harrogate.

Collegiate totalled 292 for two and Harrogate replied with 239 with Ryan Bradshaw top scoring with 77 while Alexis Twigg made 76.

David Barrick scored 115, including 15 boundaries as Hull won away to Castleford by six wickets. Dominic Sharp and Alex Romaniv shared an opening stand of 117 as Castleford made 217 for nine.

Gareth Purshouse with 96 and Archie Ogden 93 not out were leading scorers for Rotherham as they beat Driffield by seven wickets. George Drury made 98 in Driffield’s total of 272.
