Sunderland face Swansea at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm.

Bradley and his family will be special guests of the club and the youngster will join striker Jermain Defoe, the player he refers to as his ‘best friend’, on the pitch before the game.

All proceeds from the sale of the match programme, which is priced at £3, will be donated to Bradley’s Fight, the charitable fund set up by the Lowery family.
