Four wickets from Alfie Gleadall could not prevent Derbyshire from defeat to Yorkshire in the Second XI Trophy at Barnsley. 

Gleadall took 4-44 as Derbyshire dismissed Yorkshire for 209, with Sam Conners (2-45) and James Taylor (2-34) also striking more than once in the innings, as the visitors were set a total of 210 to win.

Leus du Plooy (38) and Daryn Smit (33) gave Derbyshire a chance, but Yorkshire dismissed the visitors for 157 to inflict a 52-run defeat.

Yorkshire’s openers put on 17 runs for the opening wicket before Sam Conners had Ben Birkhead caught behind for two.

After scoring a century against Derbyshire in the Second XI Championship match earlier this week, Will Fraine was unable to continue his form, falling when he was caught by Watt off Conners for a score of 17.

Gleadall then struck for the first time in the innings when he dismissed Thompson, another high scorer from the Championship game, caught behind for 36, after he and Anjam had put on 73 runs for the third wicket.

Fynn Hudson-Prentice claimed the wicket of Anjam for 31, while Mark Watt dismissed Ramkumar lbw for 14, leaving Yorkshire 121-5 in the 23rd over.

Gleadall took his second wicket of the innings when he had Fisher caught by Hudson-Prentice for 30, before claiming the wickets on Barnes (24) and Taylor (0) in consecutive deliveries two overs later.

James Taylor got the penultimate wicket of the innings with the dismissal of Mathew Pillans for seven, before the same bowler had Poysden caught behind for eight runs to end the innings.

Derbyshire managed 15 in their reply before Dinnie (6) was caught by Birkhead off the bowling of Matthew Fisher in the fifth over. The wicketkeeper claimed another catch for the second wicket, when he caught McGladdery behind of Thompson for 16.

Tom Wood was caught by Thompson  off the bowling of Barnes for seven, and Hudson-Prentice was out for six, caught by Fisher off Thompson.

Derbyshire were now 54-4, with Leus du Plooy and Daryn Smit at the crease. The put together a stand of 30 runs before the former was trapped lbw by Poysden for 38.

Marshall fell soon after for a score of three, meaning that Derbyshire had lost six wickets for under one-hundred runs.

While Smit continued to frustrate the Yorkshire bowlers, Gleadall got out for six when he was caught by Thompson off the bowling of Barnes.
