Everton To Celebrate The Life Of Bradley Lowery

Everton will host a charity football match to celebrate the life of Bradley Lowery, who captured the hearts of football fans around the world. A host of celebrities will lace up their boots at Goodison Park on September in match dedicated to the six-year-old Sunderland supporter, who died last month following a brave battle with cancer.

Through his illness and love of football, he struck up a friendship with Sunderland and England striker Jermain Defoe. Everton also formed a special bond with the youngster, initially during their match at Sunderland in September last year and again when he was a guest at Goodison Park for two matches.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright said “We kept in touch with his magnificent family throughout the weeks and months that he battled like few six-year-olds, and I will treasure forever the little goodnight videos he sent to me. I was so privileged to know him and his family for the brief time I did. I know Evertonians like me all felt privileged that little battling Bradley Lowery, adopted us as his second club. There's little that I could ever add to the tributes to Bradley, that have already been fulsome throughout the world of football - and onwards. I didn't know him for long but from the second he walked onto the pitch with his beloved Sunderland Football Club against us, I felt an overwhelming Blue need to support him. Everyone at Everton feels honoured to support this match to celebrate the life of one of football's all-time greats - There's Only One Bradley Lowery.”
