Fan Who Coined The Chant “Will Grigg On Fire” Gets Free Season Ticket

Will Grigg is still on fire and, by the looks of it, there isn’t a hose pipe in sight.

The Will Grigg chant is everywhere and no doubt whoever scores England’s first goal of the Euros will get their own version echoing across the nation…

90’s Dance Revisited

But the viral chant has brought out the best in Wigan Chairman David Sharp, after he rewarded lyricist Sean Kennedy with a free season ticket for 2016/17 campaign.

Since ‘Latics fan Sean re-worded the lyrics to the 90’s dance hit ‘Freed From Desire’ and posted his performance on YouTube the chant has gone viral, not just amongst Wigan fans, but across the footballing world. Video footage from the pubs and stands soon spread across the web resulting in a number of humorous spin-off’s including this little number by The Away Day Bible.

Just Rewards

Sharpe, the youngest chairman in British football after being appointed in March 2014 by grandad Dave Whelan at the age of 23, was so impressed he decided to reward Kennedy.
“Signed him for his goals but this Will Grigg chant was worth paying money for alone! It’s gone worldwide!” Sharpe tweeted on Monday.

“For inventing the best chant ever known to man, you’ve earned yourself a free season ticket for next season @KennoUTJ. Will Grigg’s on fire.”

Kennedy replied: “Absolutely unreal, what a club, what a chairman, what a guy!!! UP THE TICS”.

You’ve got to love Scottish football!

Queen of the South have have revealed 19 year-old youth team goalkeeper Sam Henderson is set to miss his opportunity to make the first team squad this weekend after he was hit by a runaway cow

Henderson was due to step up into the first team squad from the youth set-up against Dumfermline on Saturday for only the second time after regular keeper Alan Martin was ruled out injured.

But it’s looking possible that the Dumfries club will be without a reserve keeper after Henderson injured his shoulder a the speeding cow at his dads farm went straight through him at the start of the week.

Queen Of The South’s assistant manager Dougie Anderson revealed the issue to The Scottish Sun yesterday.

He said: “Sam has missed training this week after being struck by a cow.

“It could have been worse as the cow ran at him for a second time but he managed to get out of the way.

‘He has a sore shoulder so he is getting closely monitored and a lot of treatment as we do not want to go into the game without a goalkeeper on the bench.’

Lets hope he’s not milking it and can pull through in time for the game with surfactant moovement in his shoulder, he’d certainly deserve a pat on the back.

Sorry. I’ll leave now.

Unbelievable moment goalkeeper scores first Welsh premier league goal of 2018 (VIDEO)

‘The lads said how strong the wind was and said to give it a good hammering’

Not exactly the words of a true great goalscorer, but the words of the scorer of a bloody great goal.

Unlikely as it sounds, Carmarthen Town’s No1 Lee Iszi became the first goalscorer of 2018 in goalkeeper in Welsh Premier League.

The goal came on 66th minute of Carmarthen Towns New Year’s day clash, away at Aberystwyth Town.

Idzi managed to take advantage of the blustery conditions finding the net after his heavy punt caught the wind and hit the back of the net to give his side the lead at Aberystwyth’s Park Avenue.

Unsurprisingly the strike was the 29-year-old’s first ever goal in his four years at the club

After the game he said: “At half time the lads said how strong the wind was and said to give it a good hammering.

“I couldn’t actually tell it had gone in, I thought it had gone over the bar. I only knew when the boys started celebrating.

“The response has been a bit mad! People have been messaging and texting.

“The boys have been giving a bit of banter on the group chat- it is all a bit of fun really.”

The clubs Twitter account went crazy after the goal.

. Carmarthen went on to win the game 2-1 thanks to Idzi’s however the long range effort still wasn’t enough to lift side being rooted to the bottom of the league.

Hopefully with a little more help from Mother Nature relegation can be avoided in 2018.

Watch it all unfold below.
