Guy Fisher (39) and James Riley (36) put on 58 for the first wicket, before Barrow collapsed to 108 all out.

Harptree's openers put on 39, but Kieran Owen (3-15) and brother Matt (5-6) combined to devastating effect to dismiss the hosts for 91, to the delight of captain - and dad - Steve Owen.

Mark Fisher and Premil Fernando (both 39) led the firsts to 174 against Bristol University Staff on Saturday, while Hashan Mudiyanselage (3-22) took bowling honours as the hosts won with four overs to spare.

The seconds visited Chilcompton with only 10 players and saw Nick Heal hurt while fieldling, which led to a lengthy delay.

The hosts made 203 from 32 overs, with Barrow coming up 25 runs short after Ali Hood (83) and Pete Holdaway (26) put on a second-wicket stand.
