SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Five

SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Five

Over the last five days, the SSFC Advent Calendar has begun to spread some festive joy.

Congratulations to Steve Beckwith, who won the competition for a party grill courtesy of our sponsors TGS Industrial Supplies.

The winner of a signed pair of Myles Boney’s gloves will be announced on Saturday but in the meantime, we are today launching another competition.

Day five of the SSFC Advent Calendar is introduced by Dillon Morse in the tweet below.

In the video, Dillon asks the first question to go towards a competition for a child to win a place on the SSFC Foundation Christmas holiday course.

For each of the next four days, a question will be revealed and when the final question is published on Tuesday, supporters will have until 9am the following day to submit all of their four answers together via email to

Today’s question is: Which club did South Shields defeat 3-0 on the opening day of this season?

We also today highlight our second charity of the month, Hospitality and Hope.

This is a fantastic South Shields-based charity which supports vulnerable and homeless people in our community through areas including a food bank and a supported housing project.

The charity is also this month publicising a reverse advent calendar, which highlights some of the items they are most in need of this festive season. You can read the items they require in the graphic below.

Over the month, donations will also be encouraged towards the club’s charitable Foundation, which works with hundreds of children each week and does such fantastic work within our community.

Thank you for your continued support and keep an eye out for Day Six – and the launch of another competition – tomorrow!
