Grigg’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round winner against the Premier League Champions was voted by fans as Latics’ 2017-18 Goal of the Season.

  • Will Grigg wins Wigan Athletic’s Goal of the Season for his match-winning effort against Manchester City in the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup
  • Grigg scored 26 goals in the 2017-18 campaign and pipped Gavin Massey (v Fleetwood Town) and David Perkins (v Blackpool) to the award
  • Grigg: “It was a special moment and one I will never forget.”

Wigan Athletic striker Will Grigg scored Latics’ 2017-18 Goal of the Season, as voted for by the club’s fans, with his strike against Manchester City in February’s Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round win over the Premier League Champions receiving 34% of the vote.

Gavin Massey’s fine individual goal against Fleetwood Town received 18% of the vote whilst David Perkins’ iconic goal against Blackpool and Max Power’s piledriver against AFC Wimbledon both received 16% of the vote.

The goal against City will go down in Latics folklore as one of the club’s greatest moments and Grigg says it is one he’ll never forget.

“It was a special moment and I will never forget,” he told WISH FM’s Chris Milow on the stage at the Promotion Party in the Park.

“Once the ball hit the back of the net, I just stopped and wanted to take the moment in, it was incredible.

“I’m delighted to win but of course I would have voted for Perks’ goal at Blackpool.”
