Bradley, from Blackhall Colliery, who was a huge Sunderland fan, fought a brave battle with neuroblastoma before passing away in July, aged six.

Proceeds from sales of the shirts will be donated to the Bradley Lowery Foundation and a fundraising drive to create a holiday home, Bradley’s Place, to give families with sick children an opportunity to spend time together.

Among Sunderland fans eager to get their shirts were dad Chris Phillips and his daughter Grace.
