The man behind the 'Will Grigg's on fire' chant has been given a free Wigan season ticket


If you know anything about Will Grigg, you probably know that he's on fire.

That's what the Wigan chant that's gone well and truly viral over the last couple of weeks would have us believe, anyway.

The man thought to be responsible for this chant taking over the world is Latics fan Sean Kennedy, who rewrote the lyrics to 90s dance hit 'Freed From Desire' by Gala and renamed it in tribute to the Wigan striker, who scored 28 goals this season.

Here he is doing a slightly terrifying megamix in honour of the Northern Ireland international.

The song has been adopted by Wigan fans and the club's players, who gave their own rendition when celebrating winning the Sky Bet League One title on the pitch after the last-day defeat to Barnsley.

And Kennedy's superfandom has been well and truly rewarded by Wigan chairman David Sharpe.

Sharpe, the youngest chairman in British football after being appointed in March 2014 by granddad Dave Whelan at the age of 23, was so impressed he decided to give Kennedy a free season ticket.

Needless to say, Kennedy was pretty pleased.

Not only that, the chant now his its own Twitter account, sharing parodies like these.

Even Northern Ireland are getting involved.

It's fair to say "Will Grigg's on fire" is on fire.
