We observed the afterglow of the short-soft GRB 190627A (Sonbas et al. 
GCN 24888, Siegel et al. GCN 24889, Evans et al. GCN 24890, Pozanenko et 
al. GCN 24892, Leonini et al. GCN 24893, Morris et al. GCN 24894, 
Lipunov et al. GCN 24895, Mao et al. GCN 24896, Barthelmy et al. GCN 
24899, Kann et al., GCN 24901) with IO-I on the 2 m Liverpool Telescope, 
at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, in La Palma (Spain).

The observation consisted of 4 visits of 10 x 60 s in the H band, with 
good detections at all epochs. In the first epoch, obtained at a mean 
epoch 11.6492 hr after the burst, the object is detected at a magnitude 
of H(AB) = 17.04 +/- 0.10 mag. The photometry was performed with respect 
to 2MASS field stars.
