Root for Bedale – Non-league club swap sausage kit for carrot strip

AFC Bedale's new carrot-themed kit

After previously incurring the wrath of the Football Association (FA) for a "bangers and mash" kit, non-league side AFC Bedale have taken a step closer to the 'veg'.

Last year, the FA found Bedale to be infringing sponsorship rules after they revealed a garish uniform that was essentially sausages, mashed potatoes and peas.

The club were banned from wearing it in any matches, a fact rued by the club as it had been voted "worst ever kit" by the Kitted Out podcast.

But undeterred by that incident, Bedale's desire to upset the applecart has grown, and they hope fans will be able to root for the team in their new kit.

Instead of a sausage, the strip's centre-piece is a carrot, which sees the shorts coloured entirely orange and then the top of the vegetable stops in the upper-chest area, with blue sky then covering the shoulders.

Bedale began creating bizarre sausage-themed kits in 2017 as part of a push to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, but the latest is their first veggie effort.

The 2020-21 goalkeeper top depicts a cheese grater, and the club brie-lieve the FA will not be as annoyed this time around.
