Newport County AFC fan 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 is being rewarded by Sky Bet with the Fan of the Month award."

Jonathan's Sky Bet League 2 Prediction:

Newport to beat Exeter 3-1 with Andrew Hughes to score first (200/1)*subject to change
Newport to draw with Bury 2-1 with Aaron O'Connor to score first
Newport to beat Carlisle 5-1 with Chris Zebroski to score first 

If Jonathan won the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for Newport County, he would buy Joe Day.
