Everton and Sunderland to honour Bradley Lowery

eNewsletter

Everton and Sunderland players will wear shirts with the Bradley Lowery Foundation logo on the front when they meet in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

Sunderland fan Bradley, six, died after a long illness in July.

SportPesa and Dafabet, the official shirt sponsors of Everton and Sunderland respectively, have agreed to the idea for the third round tie.

"We are absolutely thrilled to see the foundation logo on the front of the shirts," said Bradley's mum, Gemma.

The Bradley Lowery Foundation was launched last month, while TV stars and former footballers took part in a celebrity charity match at Goodison Park in memory of Bradley earlier this month.

Members of Bradley's family will be special guests of SportPesa for the Sunderland tie.

Speaking ahead of the game, Gemma Lowery said: “We are absolutely thrilled to see the Foundation logo on the front of the shirts. The game has a very special meaning to myself and Carl and we are overwhelmed by the support we have received from Sunderland and Everton.

“Bradley will be watching over everyone and I’m sure he would be very proud that his legacy can now help others.”
