Non-league Bedale AFC will rise to the occasion in shirts and shorts displaying the classic British dish.

The sausage-and-batter-print outfits are complemented with green socks.

To make matters worse, the goalkeeper’s strip is modelled on a side order of mixed veg.

Bedale, in the North Riding League, are notorious for having the worst kits in football — dreamed up by the club’s sponsor, North Yorkshire-based sausage maker Heck.

Strips included a hot dog shirt, a cheese grater kit and even see-through gear to remind men to get checked for the disease.

But sales to fans have raised thousands of pounds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Bedale chairman Martyn Coombes said: “We’ve been inundated with requests to buy them.”

They plan to donate £5 from every shirt sale.

Heck co-founder Andrew Keeble said: “What started as an innocuous sausage kit has snowballed into this massive, almost unstoppable force.”
