Jack Hendry has signed a 2-year contract with Dundee. The defender will return to his country of birth to represent the Scottish Premiership side, who finished 10th in the 2016/17 season.

He played three times in his spell at Wigan, which began in September 2015. Those appearances were all in the Football League Trophy (colloquially known as the MSPaint Slash Jordy Hiwula Trophy): against Crewe, Blackpool and Barnsley.

The 22-year old has also spent time on loan at Shrewsbury Town and MK Dons.

However, he will perhaps be best known amongst small time Internet webloggers for one particular ‘famous’ Tweet. It didn’t quite go viral, but it was mildly humorous nonetheless, and hence worthy of inclusion in this tribute.

‘Finally recovered after swallowing wasp a training today and it stinging my throat, some pain it causes for a wee fly’

This week on Jussi’s Bunch: ‘I know a guy who swallowed a fly!’ – Jesus Was a Wiganer, October 2015

Speaking on Twitter, Hendry said of the move: ‘Looking forward to the future ahead at Dundee! Can’t wait to get started.’

He also took time to thank the Latics fans, adding that they had ‘been spot on since I arrived there till now and appreciate the messages.’

I think you’ll enjoy Scotland, Jackie – there are fewer wasps about!
