The Wealdstone Raider (real name Gordon Hill) is an English Internet celebrity and meme, born and local in Wealdstone, London Borough of Harrow.
A supporter of Wealdstone F.C., he came to attention due to a viral video of him heckling opposing supporters at Whitehawk F.C. in March 2013 with phrases such as "You want some?" and "You've got no fans". Hill claims to have been under the influence of alcohol during this heckling.
Hill claims to have raised £3,000 for charity by charging fans £2 for a photo with him. Hill has an agent who takes bookings for him to appear at nightclubs and events.
In 2014, the Daily Mirror started a campaign to get the Raider to Christmas number one, to which he obliged by recording a single called "Got No Fans", the royalties of which all go to the charities Great Ormond Street Hospital, Wealdstone Raider Youth FC and Autism Concern. On 21 December, the Raider charted at number 5 in the Christmas charts, led by X Factor winner Ben Haenow. However, he topped the week's UK Indie Chart.
