Wigan Athletic intrigued the internet when they announced a new mascot this week. It was a pie.
Not just any pie however, it is a ‘crusty pie’ armed with a perma-grin.
Designed by two local children as part of a competition, Crusty will be the guest of honour at the DW Stadium this season.
Speaking about their winning entry, Cayden, eight, and Neve, nine, said:
“We designed Crusty like this because everyone in Wigan loves pies.”
The latest mascot joins the influx of weird and wonderful characters cheering on their teams.
