a lad who prefers the company of a mot rather than being chill with fellow lads. a fanger may be labelled as such due to displaying a sly or secretive attitude concerning his womanising ways to the lads, and will in most cases be made an example of.
facebook status by jilted lad friend: "james, the fanger, is on a date right now. Fang. Er."
comment: "we're one short for a footie match thanks to john and his bird...he's such a fanger."
