On Thursday 23rd May 2019, the annual Electronic Sourcing Industry Football Match was held at the Sussex County FA stadium in Lancing. With twelve football teams competing for the GELEC Cup and Electronics Sourcing Shield, it was the largest football tournament to date.
The teams who competed for the title were GELEC, GB Electronics, NCAB Group, CCL, Rutronik, eBOM.com, Harwin, Avnet EMG, Photronix, Electronics Sourcing, GC Components and MMG.
At 10:30 am, the first round of football games kicked off. With 15 minutes of football per game, the electronic industry teams ambitiously competed with their opponents.
After many competitive 5-a-side football matches had been played and tea / coffee consumed- the tense semi-finals got underway.
At 1:15 pm, the final for the GELEC Cup and Sourcing Shield kicked off. After many successfully played matches, Photronix were the proud winners of the GELEC Cup. With the tense battle of a penalty shoot-out between Sourcing and GC Components, the winners of the Sourcing Shield were GC Components after clinching it in sudden death.
