Crusty the Pie - the new Wigan Athletic mascot

Crusty the Pie, designed by two local schoolchildren, has already proven a hit, even overseas where features on him by the BBC and Sky Sports have been seen. There have been a few people - including former club chairman David Sharpe - who don’t feel that re-booting the “pie-loving Wiganers” stereotype is doing the town and club many favours. But most comments on social media have been positive. And Crusty certainly proved a lucky mascot on his DW Stadium debut as Wigan beat Cardiff City 3-2. What do you think of Crusty?
