"I don't know much about Doncaster other than they are called Donny and play at the Keepmoat, but Donny fans, this is for you."

He then launches into the chant which has the lyrics: "I love the Doncaster Rovers, the super Doncaster Rovers who play at the Keepmoat in the Lakeside.

"I love the Doncaster Rovers, the super Doncaster Rovers that give the South Yorkshire that Donny pride!"

Mackie then looks into the camera and announces: "Doncaster Rovers - hope you have a good season."

He has also created videos for other local teams including Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, where he sings about former Keepmoat star Billy Sharp and calls the club "Donatello Rovers."

He then launches into the chant, to the tune of the Spice Girls Who Do You Think You Are which has the lyrics: "Touch it, take it, score it, make it, we've got Billy Sharp. Touch it, take it, make it, score it, we've got Billy Sharp!"

His self-made football chant videos have become a viral hit with fans of English clubs.

Recently he told blogger Theo Cummins on his blog that he thinks his videos are being watched for numerous reasons and said: “20% of Brits get p***** off to see a ‘Yank’ – as I’m regularly called – say soccer. 20% think I am British putting on a parody which I think is great. And the other 60% love the aggro I get and see it as a wind-up.”

Mackie, originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, moved to Bracknell, Berkshire aged 12 when his dad got a job here.

He became a fan of Reading after going to the Madejski Stadium and seeing them beat West Ham.

Mackie said this is where he was first introduced to "soccer" chants.

Mackie says fans are constantly asking him to do a chant for their team and he currently has 2,000 unread requests in his inbox.
