Competition | Signed Jamie Johnson Book

The Jamie Johnson series of novels are a craze among kids around the country.

The stories, which follow the fortunes of aspiring young football player Jamie, have sold 700,000 copies around the world and have recently been turned into a BBC TV series to boot.

And now watfordfc.com has a very special prize for you – two copies of a new special edition of Final Whistle, the concluding book in the series, which have been signed by the author Dan Freedman.

The special edition has just been released and it contains a new chapter which follows on from what had originally been a cliff-hanger ending.

So, to win one of these signed special edition copies, simply send an email to themediateam@watfordfc.com with the subject line ‘Jamie Johnson competition’, including your name, address and contact phone number, as well as an answer to the following question:

Q: Who was Watford’s top goalscorer in the 2016/17 season?

Entries must be submitted by midnight on Sunday October 8. Two lucky winners will be chosen at random and notified next week.

The Jamie Johnson books are available in all good bookshops and online.

You can follow Dan Freedman on Twitter @DanFreedman99.
