Sunderland have released a special edition home shirt in memory of Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old Black Cats fan who lost his battle with neuroblastoma in July.

The Championship club have launched 'For Bradley', a fundraising campaign aimed at creating a holiday home for sick children and their families.

Sunderland players will wear the shirt - which features the words 'For Bradley, For Everyone' on the front - for the game against Millwall at the Stadium of Light this weekend.

The players' shirts will be auctioned off while replicas will be sold in the club shop and online, with all proceeds going towards the campaign.

Bradley's mother Gemma said: "One of our favourite memories is taking Bradley on holiday to Scarborough.

"We are absolutely thrilled that Sunderland AFC suggested that we could create similar memories for other families.

"Since Bradley's sad passing in July we have worked tirelessly to ensure a positive legacy will come from his personal fight and I'm sure Bradley will be watching over everyone and be very proud that his legacy will now help others."
