Everton and Sunderland show their class ahead of Carabao Cup clash on Wednesday

Bradley Lowery Foundation

Sunderland and Everton players will wear the logo of the Bradley Lowery Foundation on their shirts for Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup third-round clash between the clubs.

After the match at Goodison Park, the shirts will then be signed by the players and auctioned off to raise funds for the organisation.

The Bradley Lowery Foundation was set up by Bradley Lowery’s parents Gemma and Carl in memory of six-year-old Bradley who tragically passed away in July this year following a battle with cancer.

Bradley captured the hearts of millions through his numerous appearances as a mascot for games with Sunderland, Everton and England.

“Proud legacy”

Bradley formed an incredible bond with former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe, who would often visit the youngster.

“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,” Gemma Lowery said.

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