SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Seventeen

SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Seventeen

Over the last 17 days, the SSFC Advent Calendar has begun to spread some festive joy.

Congratulations to Rob Kelleher, who won the competition for a jacket from Barbour.

The winner of a mascot package was Jan Wardley.

Day 17 of the SSFC Advent Calendar is introduced by Sam Hodgson in the tweet below.

In the video, Sam asks the first question to go towards a competition to win a South Shields FC matchday hospitality package.

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

Today’s question is: Sam Hodgson made his senior debut for Shields on the same day as Mathew Wade and which other SSFC Academy graduate?

We also today highlight our fifth charity of the month, the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust.

The Trust honours teenage sweethearts Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry through what they loved most and aims to inspire others to follow their dreams in sport or performance.

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