The final month of 2020 is upon us and we are attempting to spread some festive joy ahead of Christmas.

This is day one of our SSFC Advent Calendar feature, which is being kicked off with a message from goalkeeper Myles Boney which 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 first item up for grabs is a signed pair of Myles Boney’s gloves. For each of the next four days, a question will be revealed and when the final question is published on Friday, supporters will have until 9am the following day to submit all of their four answers together via email to info@southshieldsfc.co.uk.

Today’s question is: Which club did South Shields sign Myles Boney from?

The club will also be highlighting some fantastic charities over the next three-and-a-half weeks.

The first of them is South Shields-based Cancer Connections, which is dedicated to serving individuals and families suffering from cancer and its after-effects. We fully appreciate that times are difficult at present and many will not be in a position to donate, but those who would like to can do so by clicking here.

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 Two – and the launch of another competition – tomorrow!

South Shields Football Club is delighted to announce the permanent signing of goalkeeper Myles Boney.

Boney is the club’s first summer arrival after making a real impression in a season-long loan spell at Mariners Park in 2019-20.

He joined Shields on a temporary basis from League One side Blackpool last summer and went on to appear 37 times as a key part of a team which was 12 points clear at the top of the NPL Premier Division table before the season was curtailed.

Landing Boney on a permanent deal was one of the Mariners’ key summer priorities and the 22-year-old was also hugely keen to return to South Tyneside.

He said: “I’m very excited to be a South Shields player again.

“It was a very easy decision for me after the good season I enjoyed here on loan.

“From the moment I joined last summer I felt very welcome and loved the place, the staff and the players.

“The fans also took to me really well and if the fans, players and staff like you, you get a very homely feeling.

“When the opportunity came about to come back on a permanent basis it was a no-brainer, and I’m buzzing to be part of things moving forward.”

Shields are on course to be back in competitive action in mid-September, with the NPL Premier Division hoping to be given the green light to resume.

The frustration of last season’s efforts not resulting in promotion was felt hard by players and staff, but there appears little doubt that feeling will act as a huge driving force as the Mariners look to hit the ground running in 2020-21.

Boney added: “We’ve got massive motivation to do well again.

“Things happen in life that you can’t help and that aren’t necessarily anyone’s fault, and we just have to go again.

“We’ve got to go back out and do what we were doing last season even better.

“To win promotion this season would feel even sweeter having felt that disappointment, and that’s definitely the goal for us.”
