Every month, we name a huge Jamie Johnson fan as a Fan of The Month! This fan could be anyone, from anywhere around the globe. He, she or they could come to our attention in several diverse ways, for example, at a school Dan attends, a piece of writing he or she sends to Dan, or a fan-mail or letter that they have sent. We like to have an interview with the winner as well.

Congratulations to Yahya – he is the August JJ Fan of The Month! He came to our attention after Dan received a nice email from him, as well as a brilliant video of him using skills to outwit his dog and score a goal, which can be seen later on in this article!
