For the fifth year running, we’ve teamed up with Bedale AFC on yet another sausage-themed football strip, all in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. Although slightly more understated than last year’s see-through kit, this year’s ‘Toad in the Goal’ strip is still every bit the head-turner and celebrates all things Yorkshire.
You know us, we love to put our own HECK twist on traditional favourites, so we’ve taken the classic Toad in the Hole and given it a whole new meaning…and name! Welcome Bedale AFC’s latest sausage-themed football strip: Toad in the Goal.
It was difficult for us to try and top last year’s revealing see-through kit without causing the team, and fans, unnecessary trauma. So, with that said, we thought we’d go back to our roots with the new Toad in the Goal strip, which launched on 29 July just in time for Yorkshire Day. Keeping in tone with the previous controversial ‘wurst’ ever HECK bangers kit and the bangers and mash strip that was banned by the FA back in 2019, this year’s strip will see the team ready to batter their opponents in head to toe Toad in the Hole, with their Goalie dressed as a side helping of mixed veg. Plus, with clubs set to mix and match their kits to help fans and players with colour blindness, there’ll be no chance of Bedale AFC ever clashing with their opponents!
Since teaming up with Bedale AFC in 2017 to come up with unconventional football strips, we’ve raised over £3,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, which makes all the controversy well worth it knowing that we’re helping to raise awareness and encourage more men to check!
With 1 in 8 men likely to develop prostate cancer during their lifetime and 47,000 a year diagnosed with the illness, we’re trying our best to call for more funding to be put behind testing and research.
