Wigan fan wins season ticket after chant becomes internet sensation
Wigan fan Sean Kennedy has become an internet hit with a song dedicated to the club's top scorer Will Grigg.
The Latics, who won the FA Cup in 2013 under Roberto Martinez, gained promotion to the English Championship by winning the third tier this season, thanks mainly to Grigg's 25 goals.
That achievement led to Kennedy creating his own chant called "Will Grigg's on fire" to the tune of Gala's "Freed from Desire".
Here's the original video:
Love the tambourine!
The Wigan fans then adopted the catchy tune:
Before the players cottoned on to the inventive chant:
Even rival teams in League 1 enjoyed the Grigg song:

And it didn't end there as Kennedy was rewarded with a free season ticket from Wigan chairman David Sharpe, who sounded mighty impressed.
For inventing the best chant ever known to man, you've earned yourself a free season ticket for next season @KennoUTJ. Will Griggs on fire ?— David Sharpe (@DavidSharpe91) May 16, 2016
Well deserved, Sean.
