The Inter-sector Football League is a local tournament among employees of the private and public sectors in Grenada held annually during the months of September to December. The employees of the different sectors put on a display of keen competition against each other in friendly rivalries. This year’s competition had a total of 20 teams partaking, including sister company Jonas Brown & Hubbard. The teams were placed into 4 groups, where IAL won the group stage, and every stage thereafter.
The “IAL Boys” branded by “ALASKA Dairy Products” hammered their rival 13-nil in their very first encounter. The team then went on to win the stage by goal difference after drawing an equally competitive match with an opponent.
The “Boys” then went on to win all of their matches in the knockout stage convincingly, amassing a total of 26 goals and conceding only 4 goals at the end of the semi-final round after playing 6 matches. They then came up against last year’s champion in the finals in another equally competitive match. After 1: 1 half-time score and 3:3 full time score, the game went into extra time and at the end of the extra, the scores were still deadlocked at 3:3 and the game went into penalty. At the end of the penalty shoot off, the “Boys” emerged victorious with a 3:2 score. All of IAL’s Top management and Staff were in attendance and were on their feet throughout the entire game.
At the end of the season, the “Boys” were awarded $1,000.00 cash, trophies for the championship for scoring the most goals in the tournament and the most goals in a single game. And 4 players were selected as “ALL Star Players” to compete in a friendly match against a team in the Grenada Football Association (GFA). All the players were awarded individual trophies for their championship.
The IAL Team was made up of employees from all departments including Accounts, Sales, Warehouse and from our Retail outlet Ck’s Super Value. There were also three ex-employees on the team. CONGRATS TO THE IAL TEAM.
