Watch cameraman wildly celebrate Harry Clifton’s FA Cup equalizer to Grimsby before remembering being shot
The GRIMSBY TOWN photographer became an unlikely hit after he was spotted wildly participating in his club’s goal celebration yesterday.
The Mariners are currently in mid-table in the second tier but have put that up-and-down form aside for the FA Cup.
They traveled to Championship club Luton Town in the fourth round and played their part in a thrilling 2-2 draw to secure a replay.
But although Grimsby’s heroes secured a replay against the team that sat 57 places above them in the Football League pyramid, it was their official cameraman who went viral.
The visitors took the lead through Gavin Holohan seconds before the break, but were knocked back by Elijah Adebayo’s penalty just after the break.
Jordan Clark then put the Hatters ahead, but Grimsby equalized within a minute.
Harry Clifton jabbed home and raced towards the cheering fans in the away game.
However, the club’s cameraman also stood by the goal in front of the fans and jumped in the air and pressed his fist next to the players.
Liam Emmerson, Grimsby’s digital content creator, then quickly composed himself and set about snapping pictures of the wild celebrations.
The unlikely star soon went viral after Match of the Day shared footage of the scenes, and he responded to the video on Twitter by posting a crying emoji alongside the words, “Oh damn.”

Emmerson later shared a screenshot of him jumping in the air during the celebrations and captioned it “#newprofilepic.”
One fan commented: “Liam could do a job on set pieces with that jump.”
While another wrote: “Fantastic. I like this.”
That wasn’t the only highlight of a memorable afternoon at Kenilworth Road, after play suffered a brief delay after the sprinklers were accidentally detonated just moments after kick-off.
