THERE has been the dive, the one-hand salute, the aeroplane and the cartwheel somersault, but a clip of a non-league football player doing something else has been found.

Matt Russell, playing for Castleton Gabriels in 2005, scored a goal against FC United midway through the first-half.

Despite trailing 3-0, he ran away from his team mates to celebrate on his own by jumping over advertising boards and sat down in an empty stand.

He then started clapping, as if he was a supporter applauding the goal he had just seen.

Unfortunately, his celebration failed to grab the headlines - FC United won 10-2.
