Ballboy celebrations go global!

24 August 2015

Wycombe ballboy Taylor Hunt put his club on the map with his heart-warming celebrations after Saturday's last-gasp equaliser by Aaron Pierre.

The youngster was enjoying his first ever game as ballboy and dashed from his seat beside the goal to launch himself into the arms of Pierre as the defender's 95th-minute header earned a 1-1 draw against Dagenham & Redbridge, and they were quickly joined by a mass of Wanderers players in front of the Bucks New Uni Stand.

Videos of Taylor's celebrations began to be shared via social media and quickly turned viral, with posts coming from major news channels and sports blogs both in the UK and overseas.

One Vine post has received over 3 million views alone while photos of the celebrations taken by PRIME Media Images and David Cornwell have also been shared far and wide.
