Quiz The Season To Be Jolly.

Cillian loves Christmas. Do you?


Christmas is nearly here, and I’ve put together a cracker of a quiz to get you all in the mood.  The quiz will test your knowledge of Scottish football trivia, and covers domestic club football, European football and the Scottish national team.

There are 25 questions in the quiz, and the more observant amongst you will notice that number has Christmas connection.  That is because the quiz will double as an advent calendar – each question will have a numerical answer between 1 and 25 and I will release one answer a day on Twitter in the build up to Christmas, with the final answer coming on Christmas Day.  That means that each number between 1 and 25 will only be used once.

Thanks to the good people at Christmas Jumper King, the winner will receive their very own Christmas jumper, as worn by Cillian Sheridan on Sportscene last season (pictured above).  I am also willing to provide a £10 Amazon voucher (or indeed a voucher for any other online retailer) out of my own pocket for the 2nd best entry.  If anyone else wants to sponsor a prize, then get in touch with me.

The quiz was created in Google Docs and has been embedded below, so you can fill them out right here.  I will, however, also produce a text list of the questions so that you can print it out and have a think about it before you submit your answers.  Make sure you provide some sort of identifying information so that I can get in touch if you win.

This is supposed to be a fun quiz, so please don’t spoil it by using Google or other search engines.  Nobody likes a cheat.

The deadline for submitting your answers is midnight on Friday 30th November.

Good luck.
