SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Six

SSFC Advent Calendar: Day Six

Welcome to the sixth day of December, which also sees the sixth installment of our SSFC Advent Calendar feature.

Throughout the first 24 days of the month we will attempt to spread a bit of festive cheer, and today’s feature is kicked off by Phil Turnbull, whose message for fans can be viewed via the tweet below.

Over the next 24 days, you will be able to enter a range of competitions to win prizes courtesy of the club and several of its sponsors.

The latest item up for grabs is a place on the SSFC Foundation Christmas holiday course, which is taking place on December 21 and 22.

To enter this competition, supporters must wait until four questions have been asked, with the fourth to be published on Tuesday. Supporters will have until 9am the following day to submit all of their four answers together via email to

The first question, asked by Dillon Morse yesterday, was: Which club did South Shields defeat 3-0 on the opening day of this season?

Today’s question is: Which club does Phil Turnbull’s twin brother Stephen currently manage?

Remember, don’t submit your answers until the fourth question has been published on Tuesday.
