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.

To support the Foundation with a donation, please click here.

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