Gareth takes on the Raider!

22 July 2015

Gareth Ainsworth went face to face with the Wealdstone Raider at Tuesday night's friendly... but it was all smiles at the finish as the two posed for a photo in the clubhouse after the game.

The Raider - real name Gordon Hill - achieved international fame after a video of him heckling a Whitehawk fan went viral with more than nine million views on YouTube, resulting in catchphrases such as "You want some?" and "You've got no fans" becoming commonplace on terraces across the land.

He was in attendance at Grosvenor Vale to watch his beloved Wealdstone take the lead before the Chairboys fought back to win the game 3-1, and the Raider passed on his congratulations in person to Ainsworth after the game, telling fans he predicts play-off glory for the Wanderers in the forthcoming season.

A photo of the pair was snapped by Alan Palmer and the Raider later tweeted a light-hearted warning to the victorious manager:

"Mr Ainsworth might've taken on Wealdstone and won but don't think you can beat the Raider as well!"
