The web star, who shot to fame on YouTube after mocking a rival football team which had “got no fans” and “got no ground”, and offering to “give it ya”, to opposing supporters, could be lined up for a slot at nightclub The Forum Hertfordshire.

The University of Hertfordshire venue’s official Facebook page teased the prospect of the diminutive unlikely star, whose real name is Gordon Hill, rolling into the club.

The post read: “Herts Uni! Do you want some? Would you like to see The Wealdstone Raider at The Forum in the new year [sic]?”

Excited fans of the cult star apparently do “want some” of Gordon’s unique talents.

The ‘Raider’ could perform his chart climbing charity Christmas hit ‘You Got No Fans’.

The track is vying for the Yuletide top spot with Simon Cowell-mentored X Factor winner Ben Haenow.

Profits from ‘You Got No Fans’ will be split between Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, Wealdstone Raiders Youth FC and Autism Concern.
