Is this the 'wurst' football kit in the UK? Team unveils hotdog themed strip

A football team whose sausage-themed strip was once described as the ugliest in the country, has gone one step further (or should that be 'furter) this season.

Amateur team Bedale AFC, who are based in North Yorkshire and who proudly name themselves as the club 'famous for the wurst kit in history' on their Twitter bio, have now unveiled a hot dog themed strip for this season after going viral with the release of last year's kit.

Sporting a tomato sauce and mustard covered hot dog on their tops and shorts, the players posed with sausage shaped squad numbers and the phrase "You'll Never Pork Alone" on their backs.

Chairman Martyn Coombs explained that the idea came about due to the fact that he used to teach Andrew Keeble, the owner of Heck Sausages who have a factory in the town, leading to an unusual sponsorship deal.

After selling out of replica kits last year, Coombs told TalkSport that it was unlikley that he would be putting them on sale again this year, as they don't have a merchandising team to deal with the orders.
