Newport County supporter Jonathan Belcher has been named the Sky Bet League 2 Fan of the Month for October.Jonathan has followed Newport with his father since the club’s non-league days at Somerton Park.
It wasn’t enough for Jonathan to go to the football with only his father - so he decided that he would take his partner Janine to a Newport game for their first date.
Jonathan said: “I am thrilled to win the award. Janine nominated me – which was a surprise - she must have enjoyed the date!
“We have had a disagreement about whether to celebrate winning the award by going to the next Newport game together – Janine is more of a rugby fan – but I think we will be at a County game together again soon.
“Funnily enough my father took my mother to a County game on their honeymoon. They were in London and the surprise of the trip was to go and see Watford play Newport.”
Newport Chief Executive Dave Boddy said: “We are pleased and proud to see one of our loyal fans being rewarded for his loyalty to Newport County AFC.
“We as a club have many loyal supporters that do a lot for the football club and we’re delighted to see Jonathan being rewarded by Sky Bet with the Fan of the Month award.”
