The 'Cancer Has No Colour' message showed solidarity with five-year-old Sunderland fan Bradley, who has terminal cancer.

Darren Powell, from Hall Green in Wakefield, was one of the Whites fans touched by Bradley's plight - which has seen clubs and supporters across the country unite to raise money for his family.

Darren and his mates have organised a fundraising match at Ossett Town FC on May 14, which will feature a guest appearance from Bradley as a mascot.

League referee Mark Heywood will officiate at the game, which will also see the banner auctioned off to the highest bidder.
