GRIMSBY TOWN’S photographer became an unlikely hit after he was spotted wildly joining in his club’s goal celebration yesterday.
The Mariners are mid-table in League Two but they put that up-and-down form to one side for the FA Cup.
They travelled to Championship club Luton Town in the fourth round and played their part in a thrilling 2-2 draw to earn a replay.
But despite Grimsby’s heroes securing a replay against the team sitting 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 they were pegged back moments after half time courtesy of a Elijah Adebayo penalty.
Jordan Clark then put the Hatters ahead but within a minute Grimsby had an equaliser.

Harry Clifton stabbed home and raced towards the jubilant fans in the away end.
The club’s cameraman was also stood next to the goal in front of the supporters and he proceeded to jump in the air and pump his fist next to the players.
Liam Emmerson, Grimsby’s digital content creator, then quickly composed himself and proceeded to snap pictures of the wild celebrations.
The unlikely star soon went viral after Match of the Day shared footage of the scenes, and he reacted to the video on Twitter by posting a crying emoji alongside the words: “Oh hell.”

While another wrote: “Fantastic. Love that.”
