Non-League Goalkeeper Goes Viral For Winding Up Opposition Fans With Goal Celebration And Fake Dive

A non-League goalkeeper has gone viral for riling up opposition fans in a Northern Premier League West match at the weekend.

Warrington Rylands shot-stopper Graeme McCall clashed with fans of Merseyside club Marine in Saturday’s league match at Rossett Park.

After seeing his side score to go 2-0 up in the match, McCall runs over to the home supporters and beats his chest in celebration.

This prompts an angry reaction from the home supporters, who launch a volley of abuse at the goalkeeper.

McCall then spectacularly loses his temper with the supporters, threatening to rip the beard off one fan.

He walks away from the supporters but then resumes his celebrations, turning round to beat his chest again for a second time.

McCall would go on to antagonise the home fans further late in the game by dramatically diving for a tame shot that was trickling well wide of his goal.

“He’s trying to take the p**s, f****ing p***k,” shouts one fan in the expletive-ridden video.

Warrington Rylands would go on to win the match 2-0, with McCall returning to goad the home fans at full-time.

McCall took to Twitter after the match to defend his actions, claiming one fan had tried to spit at him during the match.

“Nothing wrong with my celebration, I only tapped the badge on my shirt," he wrote.

“One fan tried to spit on me an others giving sh*t. Fans think because they pay to get in they can give sh*t, but can’t accept when anything comes back.”

Fans on social media have also leapt to McCall's defence.

“Don’t know what people expect I really don’t. Not often a keeper gives it back and then everyone’s [shocked] when they do,” wrote one supporter.

Another added: “It's that little bit of fencing & 18” distance that makes people think they can shout abuse without any comeback.”

Earlier this season, Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale was praised by Gunners fans for winding up Leeds United supporters in a match at Elland Road.

The England international celebrated in front of the home supporters after Arsenal scored and later blew them kisses at full-time after his side had won 4-1.
